Pours deep woody brown in color with a thin light tan head. Smell has incredible complexity. Nutty toffee malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, alcohol, and hints of cherry. Taste follows the nose with toffee, husky, caramel and chocolate malt with loads of vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Some mild hoppy bitterness blends nicely with light amounts of charred malt. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy in body with moderate carbonation and a good sweet sticky hoppy bitter balance.

Boozy yet a great sipper. Great with our Christmas dinner. Sweet with toffee and fig flavors. Very smooth and delicious.
