One I can finally scratch off my "want" list.2016 bottle 9.6%ABV per bottle label.Pours jet black into a goblet with a creamy mocha colored head atop that settles into a soapy-like mass.Full on bourbon and chocolate in the nose,this is young and pretty brash.The feel is awesome,creamy and smooth with the right fullness for a beer of this size.Bourbon/vanilla and dark fruit really hit ya up front on the palate with chocolate and molasses finishing up the flavor profile,the roast is quite subdued.Well I have finally had it....and it lives up to billing,smooth and the it's not a bourbon bomb,kick ass!

Very very nice. I would be all over this beer if I could get it easily but not sure I would go out of my way for it again. This is the 2016 batch at the brewpub.
