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.

Bottle thanks to Fro my first St. Arnold beer. Pours deep brown with minimal head. Smell is bourbon and vanilla, with a hint of chocolate. Taste is sweet bourbon finishing with vanilla, hint of oak and slight roastiness. Hides the abv well. My only complaint is the carbonation is a bit too prickly. Delicious beer, like easy drinking chocolate bourbon. Can't wait to try the others in the series!

A: Pours a deep brown, nearly black with very little head that leaves traces of lacing on the sides of my snifter.

S: Bourbon, chocolate and some dark fruits. A bit of oak from the barrel and some vanilla and caramel come through but strong sweet bourbon is dominant.

T: Beautiful up front notes of cocoa and baker's chocolate, alcohol heat that doesn't overpower, and some dark fruity notes. All in all it is well put together and the flavors complement one another well.

M: Medium to full bodied but extremely smooth. The alcohol comes through but doesn't overpower the flavors and this is a nice sipper.

O: My first Bishop's Barrel and it is a great one. I don't think I will get to try this again but I'm glad I did!
