look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Brown body. Ruby red when held up to a candle. Nice off-white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Rich coffee. No acidity. Bourbon. Vanilla. Caramel. But mostly coffee and barrel.

Taste - Bourbon more prominent. Vanilla also. Brown sugar and caramel sweetness. The coffee is less rich, but strong. Blends right into an oaky bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel - So this will sound weird, but it isn't thick and sweet enough. It could use a bit of body.

Overall - A vast improvement over Mash. The coffee is a fantastic addition.
