A: Poured into a tulip to a deep brown with a small light tan head that is quick to fade to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of caramel, toffee, vanilla and bourbon
T: taste is caramel, vanilla and bourbon flavors with a decent sweetness that isn't cloying with the faintest hint of bitterness. swallow is caramel and more bourbon with a bit of wood.
M: mouthfeel on this beer is on the heavier side of medium with soft and slightly prickly carbonation and the finish is neutral
O: This beer is pretty smooth. it has some age on it so the flavors blend very well together and it isn't the least bit harsh and the alcohol is hidden very well.
