I picked up two 4-packs of this when it came out and have already gone through half of them. Here's to the 5th one tonight!
A - Great, rich dark stained mahogany color. Can't see through this but it lightens up around the edges for a nice effect. Despite the high ABV, I got a nice head on the pour, though it didn't last for long. However, there's a nice light tan ring left behind and tons of sticky lacing. Tons...
S - Welcoming and warming smell of soft bourbon, vanilla, wood, dark fruits, cherries, and malt. Very inviting. A hint of alcohol. Super.
T - Bourbon is less pronounced in the tast than in the nose for me, while the vanilla and wood pop pout a bit more. Nice wee heavy base with sweet malts, dark fruits, and more malty goodness. Warming alcohol on the finish.
M - Very creamy. Soft, round, really fills the mouth. Medium-full body. More warmth on the way down...perfect for this cold winter night.
D - I was craving this beer tonight - wanted something with bourbon, wood, and some alcohol. And I'm big on wee heavies...love this beer and I will get some every year.
