Pours an inky black with light having next to no chance of penetrating the darkness..huge dark tan head...looks a lot like foam toffee. great retention and great gobs of lacing.
Whoa! Rich chocolate roast malts get side-swiped by aromas of vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrelsn it is apparently aged in.
Found the taste to be too one-dimensional with the flavor of bourbon whiskey domininating almost everything. I detected some of the chocolate malts, but really just too sweet. finishes slightly dry with a kind of wood ash taste.
Certainly full bodied enough with a smooth, slightly sticky mouthfeel.
Would be interesting to see if anyone has aged this one for a year. Maybe the flavour profile would round out more..
