3.23/5 rDev +0.6%
A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color. It poured with a thin film of bubbles covering the surface that faded away and left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of butterscotch in the nose along with some notes of smoke from the lapsang souchong tea.
T: The taste is dominated by balanced flavors of smoke from the lapsang souchong tea and bourbon from the barrel aging, yet the bourbon really stands out in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit syrupy (considering its strength) on the palate and has a light amount of carbonation.
O: The unique aromas and taste definitely make this an interesting beer to drink; however this is a beer that definitely needs to be sipped very slowly and is an acquired taste.

1.75/5 rDev -45.5%
Reviewed from notes.
Pours an orange-ish color with a white head and a few spots of lacing. The nose brings forward some bright hops with some pine and citrus, but these are quickly overtaken by a strong presence of tobacco and spices. Really overpowering. This carries through to the flavor, which is just full of tobacco. Really not much else. Some light spice. Like what chewing on a cigarette would be, I’d imagine. Overpowering bitter astringency in finish. Really quite bad and simply far, far, far too much tobacco character throughout.

4oz from churchkey at shorts presavor event.
WTF. herbed and spiced?
a- glden yellow, thin white head. Nothing bad here.
s- spicey, spruce, juniper, licorice. Pinesol and I don't know what to say
t- the spice race fell over into the beer? Plus bad gin. Juniper anise licorice pine overload. Offensive fusel. I don't even want to say anything good. But I guess it is interesting that they managed to shove so many wrong flavors in one place.
o- try once, share a 2oz pour w many people. Don't buy a full glass ever
