Tasted at the brewery in 8oz snifter on 5/8/15. Very complex flavors of bourbon, wood, chocolate, coffee. Very rich and smooth mouthfeel.

An incredibly silky-smooth experience, with notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla, milk chocolate and caramel. A world class beer, though a bit too pricey for a second try.
