4.5/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives espresso colored with two fingers of beige foam; good retention and splashy lacing

Smell: Modest roast and chocolate with hints of Bourbon-soaked carrot cake

Taste: The carrot cake elements of coconut, raisin, pecan, vanilla, cinnamon come through, particularly as the beer warms with the roast and chocolate being dominant; the Bourbon emerges, after the swallow, and builds in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: This beer really captures the carrot cake concept; while it is hard to pick up the roasted carrot flavor, let's be honest - it is hard to pick up carrot flavors in carrot cake, too
