Deep auburn with thin off white head. Aromas of bourbon barrel staves, semi sweet malt as liquid warms. Bourbon and boozy malt with burnt hop finish - intense. Medium mouthfeel, tongue tingles with alcohol, and bittering coating. Overall, tastes a little lite, like it needs time, but still big and boozy. Nice.

Looks fine with good aroma. Taste is widely unbalanced My first SN that I can say I won't touch again.

Bottled on 12/11/14.
Opened on 3/9/15.
Light amber color with thick lasting head. Much lacing. Full cabonation. Sharp impact of fresh hops. Pine crisp after taste. Interested in how age would change it flavor.
