A: Pours a deep ruby color with a huge two full fingers of puffy off-white head. The foam doesn't take too long to settle, but when it does there are big rocky bubbles along the edges of the glass. Tons of lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is malty, spicy, and boozy. I get a touch of caramel, leather, and tobacco in this beer as well.
T: It starts out sweet with malt and caramel. As it moves to the middle I get vanilla, spice, caramel, and leather in there. It's also a touch earth (dirt and leaves). That may not seem appealing, but it is nice. The back end brings on the booze along with more caramel and vanilla.
M: Full bodied beer. Sweet and spice envelop the palate right away. It's hefty but it's overly sticky or chewy. Nothing too lingering after the beer is gone.
O: Very good beer. The vanilla in the beer shines through thanks to the oak aging. It's pretty darn delicious. I may revisit this beer if I'm in the mood for a smooth well balanced woody beer.
