A-Black in the glass one finger off white head.

S-Bourbon, lots of it. Some roasted malt, chocolate and slight coffee.

T-Lots of bourbon. Some roasted malt, slight chocolate. The high level of bourbon when fresh dominates any other flavors.

M-Medium to heavy in body, not much carbonation.

O-Just too much bourbon, to alcoholic when fresh. It needs to sit and balance out.
