On cask at Cask Days 2012, into a pint glass. 100IBUs.

Black with dark brown bubbles for head. Nose is predominantly bourbon, oak, light vanilla, some chocolate but mostly just barrels.Taste has dark chocolate, dark fruits, heavily bitter, caramel, bourbon, oak and vanilla as well again. Alcohol comes in the finish, sticky and sweet. Full bodied and low carbonation. A solid offering, I'd certainly revisit this.
