A mix of brown dominating initially, then some darker red and orange colors when held up to the light. Aroma was definitely bourbon, but not harsh, inviting and nice.

Smooth taste, not super boozy, toffee and caramel all over this bad boy. Brown sugar probably makes this a little easier to drink, but never entering into 'sugary sweet' territory. A substantial experience with vanilla as well really integrates beautifully with the bourbon. Chewy, but not thick. Slight oak existence. Even smaller amount of smoke. Possibly a syrup presence.

Its pretty rare that I get amped up about an old ale, but I've been having some pretty decent ones lately, and this is definitely the best of the bunch. Thanks for opening my eyes.

A - This beer pours a really dark brown color, and it has some ruby highlights as well. A quite vigorous pour yielded nothing more than a small ring of foam around the edge of the glass. No lace was left behind.

S - The nose on this is just amazing. There are huge aromas of bourbon, caramel, a slew of dark fruits, dark malt, toffee, booze, dark sugar, and vanilla. The nose just blows me away, I can't wait to taste.

T - The taste is awesome on this. It is really complex and you taste different flavors with each sip, and they all meld really well together. There are some really nice flavors of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, dark malt, and dark fruits. Also, there is some chocolate, toffee, oak, and some booze. The alcohol flavor is hidden amazingly well for it being 13.5%.

M - This has a medium body and lower carbonation. It goes down super smooth, and it has a little bit of a chewy quality to it. This is probably one of the smoothest beers I have ever come across. There is a touch of alcohol warmth here, but much less than I expected. It's just so creamy and smooth.

O - This has amazing drinkability. It goes down super easy, and the flavor is amazing. Overall, this is just an awesome beer. It is very complex and delicate. All the flavors go together really well, and make for an awesome beer drinking experience. The best Old Ale I've had so far. A must try.
