12 oz bottle, 3 yrs old. Pours dark brown, almost no carbonation left. Bourbon and candy aroma. Sweet boozy candy sweet flavor, almost like a flat rum and coke. Wish I would've tried this one a year ago.

Picked this one up in a trade with Cisco. Deep dark brown pour with a quickly fading one finger off-white head with decent lacing. The nose is a really nice and unique combination of bourbon and earthy dark fruit notes along with hints of vanilla, oak, cocoa, toffee, coconut, subtle espresso, and a touch of licorice. The taste follows suit with the bourbon once again the star. Loads of cocoa complement the bourbon nicely along with hints of vanilla, oak, coconut, toffee, raisins, and brown bread. The mouthfeel is somewhat light and fizzy with huge drinkability and a nice bittersweet finish. Overall, this is a unique and really flavorful interpretation of the style. Yet another amazing beer in the Bishop's Barrel series. Highly recommended if you can still find one.
