My first bourbon barreled beer and still my favorite.

Smell: Rich bourbon qualities with a hint of sweetness

Taste: Vanilla flavor will hit your palate followed by sweet malts that compliment the barrel in the beer. Let it warm to experience different levels of oak on your palate.

Mouth Feel: Medium body with a smooth finish, definitely not as heavy as other beers in this style
