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.

2015 version
Pours almost black into a tulip glass. Tan head with good lacing.
Aroma is light. Some roasted malt.
Taste is slight bourbon, with roast malts, vanilla and dark fruit. Very nicely balanced. Not harsh. Alcohol is well hidden. Slightly sweet.
Mouthfeel is good with nice carbonation.
Overall, I really like this one. It has good balance with all the right flavors. This is a good cold weather sipper that is (luckily) available all year.

Pours dark with thick tan head. You can smell the bourbon right away but it is an amazing smell not too strong, you can also smell a hint of chocolate and oak. It has an up front bourbon chocolate syrup taste, also a hint of caramel. Feels very smooth in the mouth bourbon is not overwhelming just right. Overall an amazing beer!!!
