S: Fairly strong oak, some dark fruits, touch of chocolate, raw oak.

L: Black, light tan head that dissipates.

T: Sweet, slightly roasty malt with a prominent oak presence. Bourbon flavor is fairly muted, taking a backseat to the oak. Finishes with some additional oak.

M: Medium bodied, medium low carbonation. Alcohol slightly warming.

Ok, but quite over-oaked, really took over all the other flavors.
