Gooo Stranahans! Pours a midnight black color with a frothy dark tan head. Not as viscous as I would have thought. Limited retention but good lacing for the tasting.

The nose is mostly whiskey. Some of the base beer is present, with a light roast and chocolate backing. But limited. Some minor oaky notes with a hint of vanilla. Some yeast characteristics but light. Some plum and raisin notes.

The taste is amazing. The beer and whiskey notes come out and blend really well together. To start there is a sweetness that quickly balances with the roast and chocolate notes from the beer. But this is then blended with a stronger vanilla flavor that slowly brings out the whiskey and oak characters. Definitely a savory beer. As it warms the yeast note come out. Sugar plums and a bit of cherry notes. A light chalky in the finish.

The body is big. This is a beer that you really need to sit on and enjoy it. Carbonation is a bit high but still good. Overall a fantastic beer.
