Had on tap at EBF; now reviewing from a bottle.

Pours deep brown with a hint of ruby. Thin, pillowy, roasted marshmallow colored head throughout.

The aroma is a blast of booze, and lots of oak. Smells like I have my head in a recently-emptied barrel. Great stuff.

The taste of the bottled version is true to what I remember from the keg at EBF. Strong bourbon notes, with a solid roasty, oaky base. Maybe a touch of tobacco as well. Slightly sweet for the most part, the brandy dries out the finish, giving this brew a second life at the back end. Superb.

Mouthfeel is solid and appropriate- not too slick, and the lingering flavors are subtly sweet and pleasant, especially considering the onslaught of flavor in every sip.

This brew is truly spectacular. I have yet to try the two brews that make up this masterpiece, but I will seek them out (and perhaps mix them together). This beer is an expensive yet special treat that is worth the price of admission.
