look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle, 2013 Vintage , into snifter with an aggressive pour that left no head at all. color is a light mahogony, beer is fairly clear

You can smell the sweetness in the aroma, some bourbon, nuttiness, oak, maple

Taste is very sweet - raisins, toffee, vanilla, molasses, with some booze on the back-end

Mouthfeel - no carbonation, medium body, syrupy, warming finish

Overall - an enjoyable sipper that was fine for a cold winters evening, but it was almost too sweet. The hint of whiskey kept it somewhat balanced from the sweetness. this would be good to split with someone. would like to revisit it again when it's properly carbonated.
