3.28/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

I had this beer in a flight at Shorts Brewery in Bellair Mi. The beer was a very dark brown, almost black with a thin head and nice lacing. It had a strong caramely bourbon aroma and the flavor reflected that with every sip. The flavor was extremely rich, with heavy notes of bourbon and a caramel/vanilla aftertaste that lingered on the tongue. The smell and initial flavor were excellent but the after taste had a little too much alcohol flavor for my preference.

I normally enjoy bourbon beers but this one was a shade strong for me. In the same flight I tried had Bourbon Magician and the flavor was spot on perfect with about half the % ABV.

Serving type: on-tap
