My notes from last taste indicated Poured a opaque dark black-brown body with a thick tan head.  Peaty, nutty, chocolaty flavor with hits of creamy milk chocolate in there.  Finished a little weak considering initial flavor.  Still quite good.

If you can spot this beer aged in bourbon casks…fahgeddaboutit!  Delish!
