Thanks to Amyliz4 for bringing this growler back from the brewery.

Pours a dark amber-red with a very slight off white to tan head without any lacing. Nose brings forward a decent amount of bourbon, but also has some issues with diacetyl. The presence must be fairly strong as it comes through the bourbon, though thankfully the bourbon covers up most of it. Taste is bourbon and caramel. A bit of butter and a good amount of booze as well. Medium body with low carbonation and some heat. Drinkability si affected by the excess booze and large diacetyl presence.
