4.43/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz. Bottled 10/5/12

A - Pours cola brown in color, with lots of dark reds appearing in the glass. Creamy, two-finger head becomes a thin collar. Minimal lacing.

S - Definitely get the barrel notes. Plenty of sweet vanilla and oak. Underlying caramel and solid malt backbone.

T/M - Quite tasty! Like drinking a malted bourbon. Really well balanced. Not overpowering at all. Mild lingering bourbon aftertaste. Full bodied with almost perfect amount of carbonation.

O - Love it! Not much more to say. Drinks extremely well at a great price point. I will gladly grab this anytime it is available.
