Pours dark mahogany color with a 1 finger tan head that faded slowly and left good spotty lacing.

Smells of bourbon, peat moss, toffee, maple syrup, brown sugar, tea leaf, malt and woody/oak notes. A malt bomb with nice boozy notes and enough bourbon to bring lots of barrel notes.

Tastes of caramel, peat moss, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, toasted grains, smoked wood, bourbon, malt, toffee, maple syrup and lots of malty complexities. Rich malt flavors combined with the bourbon make this a nice malty treat, and it's easier to drink than expected with the high ABV.

Served in a Tulip glass on tap here at the Republic, Farmingdale NY.

Appearance: Dark mahogany brown coming off almost opaque with medium bubbles to the body. Head was an off-white color maybe quarter an inch below my finger. Settles like nada after the first sip.

Smell: sugary notes. Like think of sweet molasses and vanilla with notes of rum. Little complex and can be pushed a little more.

Taste: Sweet vanilla, seriously with the after alcohol feel and did I forget to mention sweet. Comes offa little bit of toffee which kinda reminds you a bit of certain English barley wines.

Mouth: Medoum carbonation but ultra sticky, factoring how heavy it drops on your palates after you finish a glass you will thank me later or a day...depends who's asking.

Overall: Good brew, as a matter a fact maybes step above us food chain of what you will ever have. Best compared to quite a few wee heavy beers and very hard to contrast the bias. Salud.

16 oz bottle 2015 version purchased at the brewery last weekend

Pours near black, dark mocha head, leaves nice fine sheeting.

Just some moderate dark malts on the nose.

Loads of rich maple malts, caramel, vanilla and some light bourbon all picked up. Alcohol on the over present side, making this one officially "hot'...maybe some more time in the bottle might help this bash...moderately impressed but no home run here
