A bit sweet. Some bourbon comes through but it's tough to overcome the creamy sweetness here.

A- Dark, muddy brown body that let's some light shine through. Thin ring of off-white bubbles coat the edge of the glass, but virtually no head to speak of.

S- Lots of toffee and booze on the nose. Hints of caramel and bourbon. Big, full nose that has a lot of strong aromas and a lot of alcohol.

T- Big flavors that really come out and hit you. Bourbon, caramel, toffee, sugary syrup, roasted malts, some roasted coconut, hints of dark fruits. A really huge sipper.

M- Full bodied, boozy, low carbonation, sugary and syrupy.

O- Just a huge beer that has a lot of complex flavors. I thought it would be slightly darker and more roasty, but it really does not disappoint.
