750ml into snifter.

A - Brown with copper highlights.

S - Caramel, vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit. Boozy.

T - Bourbon, caramel, and vanilla dominate with hints of cherry, bread, and molasses. Complex and very delicious.

M - Incredibly creamy and smooth. Full bodied, low carbonation, warming alcohol.

O - One of the best beers ever. Not only is it a great example of the old ale style, but it has distinct character and a great balance of flavors. Very drinkable at 15.5% ABV.
