When this was first released at the Busy Bee/Olde Hickory beer dinner this beer was stunning. Had it again 6-7 months later and it was a shell of its former self. Gonna stick with my first impression because it was a fresh keg at that time.

Thanks to my buddy Trask in NC for getting this for me.

A- motor oil black with a dark brown head that dissipates quickly. opaque as well.

S- vanilla, bourbon and honey. some dark figs or raisins as well.

F- the bourbon comes out stronger with the honey. I still get hints of vanilla and then the dark figs round it out.

M- wow this is good. creamy feel with a chewy taste and goes down smooth but the bourbon trails it all the way down lightly.

O- umm this is awesome!!!!give me more
