Poured into a flute.
Appearance: Dark semi-opaque amber. Head isn't thick settles rather quickly I would be lying is I said it made it to 1/8", comes off slightly dark brown.
Smell: Like pure alchol, ok maybe not..but definitely gives an aroma of fine red wine.
Taste: Comes off like a butterscotch rum, yes seriously just slightly carbonated. Might be sweet to some but the presence of the alcohol is obviously present.
Mouth: Light carbonation, not as light as some "draught" beers but not that heavy either. I like it! Compliments the sweet alcohol flavors.
Overall: Unique beer, I can compare it some but I will let you be the judge, if you like rum meets malts with slight hints of vanilla you will love this beer. It's definitely not for most but definitely for all real beer drinkers alike, Cheers to all!

Bottle from 10/3/13, poured into a snifter. Thanks to Nick for throwing this in as an extra.
A: Dark amber coming out of the bottle, but nearly black in the glass. Light khaki lacing.
S: Oak, dark fruits, caramel, and booze; light vanilla; lots of barrel and alcohol.
T: Bourbon-soaked butterscotch; sweet and malty; slight bitterness from the hops; oaky and vanilla sweetness on the aftertaste.
M: Smooth and oily; coats the palate nicely.
O: Not much of a wee heavy fan, and I didn't enjoy this beer the first time I had it. But after having it on tap and again in the bottle, it's really grown on me. Smell is fantastic, and taste and mouthfeel work together for a great drinking experience.
