On tap at the brewery. Opaque dark chocolate color with a thin tan head. A nice barrel aroma along with some chocolate and coffee. The taste was as expected. Bright coffee up front followed by a hefty chocolate presence all wrapped in a bourbon blanket. Full bodied with a slick feel. Outstanding.

Bottled 10/30/13.

Nice dark pour, not too viscous but nearly black in color. Not too much head or lacing, but the color and appearance looks great.

Predominantly dark fruit and chocolate on the nose. Very, very mild oxidation, but that’s just me being picky. Hints of dark, roasty coffee on the back end.

Damn, this has held up incredibly well. Boozy, charred oak, bourbon flavors make way for a perfectly balanced base of roasty coffee with hints of dark fruit and chocolate flavors.

Smooth mouthfeel, warming and boozy but a good weight to it. Bourbon and roast linger.

Tasted on tap at Ansari's Eagan, MN during Black Friday tap takeover. I tried this beer first and it was by far my favorite of the 4 sampled that afternoon. Thick, smooth and tasty. I've yet to be able to find a bottle of this in trade but sure glad I've at least gotten to try it now.

08/2014 - This shit is crack; impressive bourbon, caramel, cocoa, malts too up front; sweet, flavorful, bourbon, coffee, lactose, vanilla on the palate; solid mouthfeel that lingers.

A little bit of a booze bomb so make sure you aren’t going anywhere if you have it. Nothing special about this one and was pretty standard when it comes to BA stuff.
