Pours black in color with that nice oily shine to it. Khaki to copper colored head retention. Smells very boozy, I mean this beer smells nearly like straight up bourbon.

Tastes like bourbon also. The alchohol has a large presence in this beer, in flavor, smell, and warmth. I had tried this at the Columbus Beer Fest this past summer, and I believe the guy pouring said it had been aged in bourbon barrels for 2.5 years. In addition to the bourbon and roasted malt taste, it has notes of both dark chocolate and raisins.

Really good stuff. I'm very interested in getting my hands on some more of this!

Was just able to partake from a 1-gallon growler of this amazing brew that was from 2011. Poured with a dissipating head, but subsequent openings of the growler over the afternoon repeatedly gave off a hiss of a beer that held its carbonation.

The flavors were on par with a high end BBA Russian Imperial Stout, we drank and drank as a group, and everyone enjoyed. Would love to be able to try this again sometime.
