Bottle poured into a mug. Beer is a dark reddish brown/mahogany with thin tan colored head that's barely there. Plenty of alcohol legs on this big beer.

Nose is great, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, leather, coconut, vanilla, oak.

Taste follows the nose, toffee and caramel forward, with some of the darker flavors and the barrel notes accenting. A bit boozy though, but somewhat expected.

Full body, sticky and sweet, with mild carbonation that's barely able to survive the high abv. Flavorful and rich beer.
