4.38/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Dark red brown color with a head that stays for a while leaving a nice skim.
S: brown sugar, alcohol, raisin, bourbon, vanilla, great smell
T: Bourbon dominates the taste and it is creamy, rich, dark fruit coming through with alcohol coming in towards the finish - not too much. Just enough alcohol warms the palate. Very nice.
M: Very sticky, moderate carbonation, and fantastic.
D: I have to rate the drinkability here very high. I am certainly sad that I didn't have another to follow my first. I can't say that this is a wee heavy but then again there's no wee heavy bourbon barrel category. For what it is, this is a fantastic beer. The art is cool as well.
