Thanks to kbutler1 for sharing this bottle.
Pours a half finger of tan head. Color is black.
Aroma: Very fresh coffee. It is spot on goodness. Warming bourbon with nice oak and vanilla. Rich, creamy chocolate. Very little roast. Amazing.
Taste: Warming bourbon, just perfect. Oak and vanilla. Chocolate and cocoa. The coffee is perfect and it doesn't bring a lot of roast to the beer. This is spot on. A bit of dark fruits in the background.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy, and warming. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. A little thinner than I expected. Ends with just a touch of roast.
Overall, this was an amazing beer. Much better than the 08 growler I had, which lacked the huge coffee flavors. This beer was a real treat.
