One I cracked at the CCB bottle share, thanks to mposha (Reddit) for sharing.

Decent creamy fizzy head, dark molasses brown color.

Nose sweet malts, some bourbon and vanilla barrel notes, cognac fruit and sweet malt, toffee, candy dark fruit, toffee, etc.

Taste sweet candy malts, toffee, caramel, juicy barrel and bourbon juice, toffee, caramel, dark candied fruits and a little nutty.

Mouth fuller bod, decent but lighter carb, some warming booze.

T - Sweet bourbon, then caramel and vanilla follow.

D - Good carbonation with a heavy body.

O - Sweet, but nice flavors hit you in layers. Good stuff.
