A: Dark brown with a reddish tint; minimal lacing

S: Dark fruits, boozy, roasted malts; some vanilla--man, this smells good

T: Roasty with loads of chocolate, coffee, and some bourbon-- a bit astringent; oaky with some subtle vinous notes and lots of roasted coffee in the finish

F: A bit thin--even a touch over-carbonated

O: This is a nice, boozy, oaky beer
