This beer exceeds all expectations-
Appearance is a deep, dark brown, with no light shining through but some nice bubbles visible on the sides, pours a half finger of brown head that quickly dissipates.
Smell- sweet caramel, coffee, sweet bourbon.
Taste- upfront is malt sweetness, lots of caramel. followed by the coffee, which is very smooth and not bitter yet has an obvious presence. the sweet character of the bourbon is there but none of the alcoholic bite.
Texture of the beer is quite oily, with low carbonation. the body suits the flavor perfectly.
overall- this beer is a dream. all the hype does not prepare you for just how good this beer really is.
