On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours deep mahogany brown with a creamy tan head that fades.

S: Sweet toffee and roasted malt up front, a little of the whiskey comes through with some brown sugar and vanilla, then a little dark roasted malt hits with some light coffee and earthy notes.

T: Dark roasted malt up front, some semi sweet chocolate and a light touch of coffee, then you get a big hit of caramel/toffee malt sweetness, also a little brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, even a slight touch of maple, perhaps a little dark fruit buried in there, with a nice touch of bourbon on the finish, especially as it warms.

M: Full body, lower carbonation, creamy smooth, with a little warmth.

O: This is a big time beer. I was stoked to try it the second I heard about it, and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic!
