4.29/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Extremely dark, almost completely opaque with some slight hints of ruby when the light hits just right. Thick tan head with lots of lacing.

Lots of toffee and bourbon in the nose, very pleasant. A hint of burnt toast, but not in a bad way.

Definitely toffee up front, some vanilla, giving way nicely to the bourbon. A really well put together flavor combination. The mouth is a little thin for style, but at the suggestion of another reviewer, I swirled the beer in the glass between sips and this really seemed to make a difference.

A great beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.
