Had this on-tap at FoBAB, reviewing notes.

A - Dark brown beer with a small tan head that didn't stay around and didn't really leave anything on the sides.

S - Lots of bourbon with your typical vanilla, oak, chocolate, roasted malts, and slight bit of coffee. Pretty booze heavy, smells like it needs time but it's expected to be hot and not bad.

T - Taste is not as good as the nose, not even close. Tastes a lot like chalk. Bourbon is there and kind of drowns out the rest of the flavors, but it's got this horribe chocolaty chalky tastee that I just can't get pass.

M - Slightly thin, little gritty, lower carbonation.

O - Waste of PVW barrels on this beer, or something just went horribly wrong. I haven't had the regular Teddy Bear Kisses for comparison's sake, but this was not very good, and I wish I had my ticket back.
