Not sure on the bottle date, but was purchased in the fall of 2016. Poured into a snifter on 6/16/2018.

L - Dark brown, almost black with a lingering, thick, foamy mocha head.
S - Roasted malt and dark chocolate, with a hint of whiskey.
T - Sweet roasted malt and chocolate.
F - Full bodied and carbonated with some alcohol heat on the finish.
O - Very well balanced. A very good beer from Perrin. Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Pours black with a long-lasting tan head that's slightly fizzy with decent lacing.

The smell is dark malt and whiskey with dark chocolate at the end.

The taste is very sweet with a lot of dark malts and some char. There is a bunch of chocolate on the end. There is an alcohol presence throughout.

The mouthfeel is medium carbonation and medium/thick body.

Overall a good beer with a bit unusual blend of flavors. The more it warms, the more I like it.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 3/4/17.

Pours a deep cola color, somewhat opaque, with a half inch foamy head and some spotty lacing. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, light roast malts, toffee, vanilla, licorice, caramel, some coconut, light bourbon and oak. The taste leads more with the malt, then chocolate, cocoa, caramel, bourbon, some oak, lighter vanilla and licorice than the nose, light tobacco, some alcohol. Smooth, a good but lighter body for the style, well carbonated.

Great flavors and aromas, really good flavor from the barrels, has a different mouthfeel. Maybe from the rice? Very enjoyable. It’s at a great price point, so it’s well worth a purchase.

Very disappointed with this one. Despite the cool label, the high alcohol and the barrel treatment, Unfinished Business is a letdown. It's got very little bourbon presence and the flavor is dull.

I drain-poured it after one glass. Also, what the heck is "single malt bourbon"? Isn't this a term applied to Scotch whiskey? Maybe they meant "single barrel". Overall, a waste of a beer with an awesome label.
