Fantastic nose that is perfectly balanced between sweet milk chocolate and rich peanut butter. Warmth does allow the chocolate note to dominate just a bit more, with an added layer of intensity thanks to the bourbon. Medium bodied, it hits the tongue with that same chocolate note, thick and velvety, melting into an awesome peanut butter layer. Some peanut butter beers can get a bit artificial, but this is dialed in to give just the right amount of flavor. Not overpowering at all. The bourbon barrel is very subtle, offering up caramel and vanilla to round things out. This is really outstanding. Not sure if it's still available in the taproom, but it's definitely worth finding out.
