highly disappointed with this brew. Drank two bottles of the 4 pack, gave the other two away. Tasted like a rum and coke, and the coke was flat.

Pours black from bomber into pint glass.
Light tan head with tight bubbles.

Smells of light bourbon, toasty, caramel, sweet chocolate, light alcohol.

Tastes of cocoa, roasted malt, marshmallow, light bourbon. Smooth.

I saw 2 bottles at the store and only bought one. I wish i grabbed the other to age.

Good stuff, already feeling the alcohol after a half a glass. Sneeeeaky!

Very dark, almost black nearly opaque, with a modest tan head that fades quickly.

The aroma is dark roasted malt, sweet caramel and bourbon.

The taste is similar with bourbon very pronounced up front followed by sweet malt, burnt toast with some plum notes, dark chocolate and vanilla. The 11% ABV is very noticeable and takes some of the edge off of the sweetness.

Medium bodied and very drinkable.

Overall a tasty ad enjoyable brew, especially for a cold winter night.
