Dark brown pour, small tan head, little lacing. Light vanilla and scotch smell, though nothing too distinct. Taste is incredibly smooth, bourbon, vanilla, malt, a hint of chocolate, and other flavors that blend very well I can't quite put my finger on yet. Lightly carbonated. Very likeable beer, would get again.

A - Dark, deep reddish brown coloration with very thin head. The coloration is excellent

S - Smell is caramel malt with a roastiness - almost like a porter. Hints of scotch/alcohol smell come through as well. Hops are not very pronounced except for a slight piney smell.

T - Initial flavors are malty and caramel and there are notes of a warming alcohol flavor. The sweetness of the malt is tasty and forward which blends nicely. Bitter piney hops come out in taste more than the smell on the finish.

M - Smooth and syrupy. Low carb

O - Displays the maltiness of the style well without being overpowering on either sweetness or alcohol. Hints of a bitter hop balance balance well. The malt flavors are complex in this one - interesting style that I have not experienced much of.
