Black pour with a blood red tinge on edges in my chalice . Thin brown head. Caramel, toffee and bourbon nose - as it warms, the scent reminds me of biting into a caramel apple at the fair-fresh fruit and candy satisfaction. Initial taste is caramel candy and toffee with a bourbon linger. Semi sweet caramel as liquid warms tempered by oak/whiskey background. Creamy medium plus mouthfeel and alcohol bite on tongue-as it warms, sticky sweet. Overall, outstanding. Big, velvety, boozy. Simply put: heavenly.

Was not overly thrilled with this. A little too syrup-y for me

Great chocolatey, boozy, bourbon taste. Gets even tastier once closer to room temp. Will taste it anytime I find it in bottle or on tap. A classic.
