Pours black with a very thin, Lmost non existent head. I smell bourbon, chocolate, nuts, and more bourbon. Tastes the same as smells with the nut and chocolate coming on strong in the end. Also a hop presence. The Bourbon and hop flow up through the nose. The booze also slaps you on the ass, and I asked "please may I have another". Not an overly bodied beer, which puts a little more emphasis on the Wild Turkey. This takes slightly away from smoothness. A very unique and exotic beer that I enjoyed!

2/7/13 bottle.

Look: Pours with thick, large, mocha head. Slow to medium retention speed, stickier big bubbles break down - they mostly form lacing. Leaves a thick but solid layer, good amount of lacing through. Dark, dark brown, no living light can penetrate it.

Smell: Cacao, fat, full, stuffy as fuck. Milk chocolate with very well represented bourbon oak are the dominant notes. Salty, mineral, burned soy sauce, but good incorporation into roasted, chocolate heavy malt. Light alcohol to detect.

Taste: Salty, medium intense molasses start. Also very light acidity that does it good. It continues into mostly milk chocolate with some roast and burned caramel medium-heavy sweetness. But this gets quickly dominated with medium to heavy honey bourbon oak with a noticeable alcohol spike and ends with medium to heavy coffee, cappuccino bitterness. Late in the after some coconut notes star to flow around. The taste is a lot less stuffy than the nose.

Mouthfeel: Full, medium heavy body, solid, creamy with some alcohol warming.

Overall: As it's none barreled base, it’s quite a beer. A fat one, full of darker malt wonders, but this time with a very strong bourbon presence, maybe a bit too much for my taste. It's a demanding beer, but well worth your time.
