This was an interesting beer for sure. Opened a fresh 2017. Had a dark amber color. Aroma was chocolate and boozy with some sweetness. Flavor was still a little hot from the abv but still delicious. Lots of bourbon, chocolate and some vanilla. Drank a little lighter Thani expected. Overall really enjoyable.
