12 oz Bottle
-Pours deep brown. Towards the end of the pour a tan head forms, creamy looking, and mostly dissipated within 30 seconds.
-Nose, subtle, sweet, bourbon comes through pretty quickly, even a bit of alcohol warmth in the nose.
-Taste is quite good on the front end. Sweet, malty meets bourbon. A bit of roast, but then finish is dominated by the bourbon.
Mouth is a bit lighter than I expected, but not disappointing.
Overall, I liked it. But I'd like to see how this one ages. Would the bourbon smooth out a bit on the finish?
