500 ml bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip

A: Dark red, amber, head dissipated fairly quick, tiny bubbles streaming, looks pretty thin, no lacing at all.

A: Big bourbon up front, sweet caramel, coconut, very sweet aromas, alcohol is noticeable, smells like a barley wine

T: Big bourbon, toasted coconut, sweet caramel flavors, I am picking up the base beer, getting that Old Stock Ale flavor slightly in the middle, it's really hot when it's cold but taste really good as it warms.

M: Medium mouthfeel

O: World class, big bourbon, toasted coconut, sweet aromas, warms up really well, more flavors as it warms, really nice, worth the $25 for 500ml bottle, not sure, but if this was around $16-18 I would stock up and cellar a few. But the price is the only concern I am not at all disappointed with the beer, cheers!
