4/22/18 barrel dating with a 10/22/18 canning date...

Black in the glass with a thin finger of dark brown foam that slips quickly into a slim collar... On the nose, aromas of rich chocolate and sweet caramel with bourbon... On the tongue, more of that deep chocolate flavor follows, with caramel and vanilla, sweet bourbon, and yes - I guess there is something of a cookie/graham cracker/molasses element at play too... The beer does not go too sweet though - there is an edge of bitterness akin to cold coffee and wood char that maintains a balance between bitter and sweet... The feel is medium-full, with enough barrel action to impart a little tannic tautness, and enough carbonation to give it some tickle... Very pleased with this beer - recommended...

Pours quite black, 2 fingers of toffee head slowly fade. Mix of medium and fine bubble.
Smells like salted caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, graham cracker.
Taste is chocolate cookie up front, some coffee mingles in. Bitter notes of dark chocolate follow. Traces of caramel, pretzel.
Mouthfeel is near creamy, slight tingle of carb.
Overall, the nose is amazing in this, taste doesn't quite follow, but its still great. Glad to have the chance to try this. I would strongly consider picking up another can to age a bit to see if it smooths things out a little. Definitely worth a try if you have the chance though.
