(4.25) A: Ruby red when held up to light with a thin blanket of head and sparse bubbles forming a ring. Good retention and patchy lacing.
(4.5) S: Caramel-toffee, oak, bourbon, dried dark fruits (dates & raisins), and vanilla. A smooth aroma without a harsh bourbon but rather more oaky-caramel focused. Each aroma can be identified quite easily.
(4.5) T: As per the aroma, with sweet caramel-toffee upfront transitioning into the dry and boozy bourbon-oak qualities. Dark and dried fruits are present including cherries, dates, and raisins. Vanilla and slight nutty elements round this out. Wonderfully put together with all flavours shining both individually and as a whole.
(4.25) M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Syrupy with a clean texture. Perhaps would benefit from a slightly thicker body but drinkability is probably better as is.
(4.5) D: This is delicious and alarmingly drinkable with the oak bourbon barrel qualities well balanced and very complimentary to the other flavours in this. Will certainly be picking up more of this.
