Pours out a slightly cloudy then clears up as it warms. Good amount of white suds and nice lacing.
Aroma is alcohol first then a mellow malt with sugar overtones. Not a lot of citurs but plenty of grapefruit rind.
Taste is burbon alcohol first then a slight bitterness followed by all the sugar in the world.
This is so darn sweet. Then the taste is lost quite quickly mabey because of the amount of sugar here.
Mouthfeel is sticky and sugary with only a slight bitterness that goes away in short order.
The alcohol is present all through the tasting and ends up in the back of the mouth.
Overall this isn't much of a beer. Just an overbearing sugary alcohol mixed in with a slight burbon flavor.

A- Poured into a brandy snifter. Nice golden hazy yellowish amber color. The pour didn't get much of a head at all.
S- Very strong bourbon smell along with a nice citrus hop upfront with slight smells of vanilla. Oak was detected on further sniffs. This really means to please the nose.
T- Nice big hop upfront (crisp fuity grapefruit/citrus) along with oak flavor. The bourbon makes an appearance midway through the flavors and ends with a nice vanilla ending. The vanilla comes through huge when more than a sip is taken.
M- Good crisp and clean mouthfeel. This beer glides over the tounge from the good carbonation. Leaves a hoppy taste on the palate along with a nice vanilla taste as well. Overall pretty good per mouthfeel.
O- I was more than surprised with this and am happy I tried it.
