This was very good. Somewhat pricey, but a nice holiday treat.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.

Mohagany body with a thin beige cap. Bourbon, oak, vanilla aroma. Sweet and chocolate tones followed by malt and vanilla. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Delicious.

I was so disappointed with this brew. I guess Lakewood's BBT topped it so much that BBAWW had no chance. Better luck next time Rahr!
