750ml bottle poured into a tulip.

Poured black, light brown head, nice lacing.

I get mostly barrel notes in the nose.

The flavor takes it up a notch, malted chocolate, cherry, oak, with some roastiness.

Very nice chocolate oaky finish.

On tap at Banger's Anniversary

Blatant diacetyl flaw, undrinkable. Nose was like I was snorting movie theater popcorn butter.

L - pours a rich dark black color with a 1/2 inch froth
S - wow, this smells incredible. tons of syrup, cherry syrup on pancakes, molasses, bourbon/vanilla - marshmallows just awesome. makes me salivate
T - aaaahhhh, letdown. much thinner than expected. still hold some of the qualities of the aroma but flavors are contrasted from the nose. much simpler and straight forward here. want this to be creamier to hold the flavors in. Still good, just not as good as the smell. slightly boozy
F - soft and smooth, nice overall balance. slight bitter ending but nothing overwhelming
O - a good brew, the price tag was a bit rough. only because of that I will probably not seek out again.
