A-Like a deep black in the glass, clear deep mahogany, not much carbonation, one finger off whtie head with some lacing.

S-Bourbon, oak, caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruits and smoke.

T-Starts with oak, and bourbon. Then caramel, chocolate and sugar. Ends with smoke and dark fruits.

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

O-A really good beer. Extremely complex, balance was good. Worth seeking out.
