Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, barrel, and nuts. Definitely a beer with nuts. Flavor is liquid awesome. I agree with the previous rater- this one will be AWESOME for a long time to come- it will be hard to share. Flavor is nuts, chocolate, bourbon, booze, caramel, barrel, vanilla, and dark fruit. Finishes smooth as hell and extremely enjoyable. The only pain this beer brings is when it's gone. Bring-the-Pain Wayne hits another one out of the park. The hardest part will be topping this beer with future releases.

Big shout out to jdub for cracking open one of his bottles at the release party.

A: Pours a nice deep dark brown hue with a nice off white head. Very nice retention and some lace.

S: Wonderful malty masterpiece. Tons of gooey caramel and blackened brown sugar. Hints of molasses and nutty toffee. The barrel then takes over and you get loads of oak with traces of vanilla and booze.

T: Much much like the aroma. An array of sweet candy malts up front. Subtle chocolate notes before the barrel plows through. Wonderful fresh cut oak, subtle vanilla, and wonderful kentucky bourbon. Really is a great beer.

M: On the fuller side of medium, smooth, wonderful carbonation, with just the smallest hint of boozy burn.

D: One to sit back and relax with. I dream of lighting up a fine cigar and sipping this one as I puff the night away.
