Sweet bourbon and chocolate aroma. Sweet roasted malt up front, chocolate throughout, fades to fantastic bourbon flavor and slight boozy aftertaste. The bourbon flavor does an excellent job of masking the higher alcohol content. Heavy bodied and delicious.

Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Episode IV, 2012.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, vanilla, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but I think this one was probably better when it was fresh.

Serving type: bottle.
