Purchased a half pint at the brewery to enjoy

A- Poured a small head that lasted forever. Dark black/brown head and brew it's self.

S- Lots of chocolate and malty goodness. Bourbon barrel aged to perfection.

T- Lots of coffee, bourbon and chocolate. Rather hot right now.

M- Very creamy and complex. Excellent recipe.

O- Loved it. Wish it was for sale but it's on tap only.

Food Pairing.

This wonderful beer went well with..... smoked brisket sandwich they served in a food truck outside the brewery

Enjoy

Bottle received as an extra in a recent trade.

Pours really weirdly. Huge like 5 inch head, even if I pour very slowly. The head looks cool, I guess, but the beer is more head than beer, which is unpleasant, to say the least.

At least it smells pretty good- smells like hot chocolate- cocoa powder, and rich dark chocolate, with some vanilla and roasted malt.

Yeah- as expected by how it looked, this is way over-carbonated, affecting the flavor in quite a negative way. I can tell this is a nice beer underneath these problems- get a big blast of rich and sweet chocolate, with some vanilla, and a little bit roasty bitterness. All of these niceties are buried under a fizzy, overbearing carbonation bite. Quite disappointing.

This one is medium-bodied, with a fizzy, biting mouthfeel. I wish this was super creamy, as it clearly should be. Due to the carbonation issues, it's really not all that drinkable.

Sigh. This is clearly better than the bottle I got, but I have to rate what I drank. Beware.
