Semi-sweet chocolate, cinnamon and bourbon present themselves assertively on the nose with the slightest hint of raisin pudding hiding in the background. Flavors of dark chocolate, molasses and port wine interweave with subtle cinnamon spice, a mild Scoville heat and pronounced wood tannin sensation on the palate. Irish whiskey and bourbon barrels help accentuate the beer’s vanilla addition and it’s complimentary spiciness.
