8 oz pour on tap into snifter glass at the source.

A: Very small off white head as a film around the glass. Body is a murky brown caramel color with very little light getting through.

S: Toffee, honey, vanilla, pungent floral and resiny hops, a little figs, and raisins.

T: The hops hit you at about the same time the bourbon does and the bourbon Ramos down the harshness of the hops floral and resin characters while giving you some sweeter toffee and figs to chew on.

M: Fuller bodied with an alcohol slickness.

O: This is a pretty damn good beer. I always like the regular Big Bang and the bourbon does nothing but compliment this beer.

Malty, rich, barrel, smooth. This bottle is something else - the heft, color and artwork are really worth extended consideration. Couldn't tell if the bottle was dark green or black. Very cool, and it sets the stage nicely for the beer. Garnet hue with a thin tan head that fades. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, oak and caramel. Taste is dates, figs, malt, roasted grains, candied fruit, coconut and butterscotch by way of the barrel. Thick and decadent mouthfeel with ample warmth from the booze. Smooth and equal parts sweet and bitter. The hops are pronounced and add a nice piney bitterness to the sweet malt and barrel characteristics. A real treat.
