Enjoyed on tap at the brewery taproom.
Pours a dark but clear reddish-brown with a slight tan head that quickly dissipates.
The aroma is really nice. I get bourbon and vanilla, toasty malt and a hint of dark fruit.
This is a very tasty beer. Lots of roast malt flavors -- chocolate and toffee and then bourbon and a little bit of sweet dates. A little bit of booze kick and drying bitter at the end.
Mouthfeel is medium-smooth.
Overall, a wonderful beer that I did not want to stop drinking. Hides its booziness quite well.

A little lace. Color is copper.

Flavor profile: Cocoa, chocolate, and coconut up front. Caramel and toffee. Vanilla, brown sugar, oak, and bourbon flavors. So much awesome here. Some dark fruits in the background. Molasses and dark dried cherries.

Smooth and easy to drink. The abv is hidden pretty well.
