Good aroma but the taste just was not doing it for me. Very hard to drink and ended up drain pouring most of it.

Served in a becker style glass

It pours very dark brown. Only the faintest of light comes through. It is topped with about three inches of mocha head.

The aroma has some cocoa and subtle hints of caramel. There is even a little vanilla in there.

I would recommend letting this one warm up a little. At first there wasn't much flavor. As it warmed the bourbon came out. I taste some dark chocolate and alcohol as well.

The mouthfeel is full.

This is not a bad brown ale. The bourbon barrel aging works well for this beer.

A big bold barrel aged brown ale with a bit of a kick at 9%, all of this and it drink very smooth. Thick toasted bread character meet the toasty wood, mild chocolate malt goes well with the warming alcohol. An all around great job!!
