Excited to catch this

A- very amber an orange haziness. Fantastic lacing clashing the edges with a frosting like presence. Bold and bright, with an excellent look.

S- bourbon and sweetness blast forward with the initial scent. Just bursting with exuberance. I can pick up the sweetness after the sting of the bourbon

T- sweeet caramel flavors intro before the bourbon. Very delicious flavors that sting a little but are very delicious. Bold and syrupy, sweet repute is very enjoyable

M- smooth but clinging flavor.

O- great flavor and a bottle I wish I sought out.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Smell: light bourbon, some mango/guava, perhaps some banana, breast notes.

Taste: marshmallow. Seriously, so much sweet marshmallow.

Overall: an interesting and very unique beer, but just so immensely sweet. I would be happy with a 4 oz pour. Glad I tried but wouldn't drink again.
