Pours a dark amber color with pretty good clarity. The aroma has big caramelized malt notes, almost to the point of malt extract. Sherry, nutty toffee, bourbon. The taste is complex and goes from sweet and malty to woodsy and dry. Creamy malt body and dries out nicely. A blend of some massive beers, this is a big statement of everything malty, caramelized and aged in a barrel. Let this sit because it opens nicely.
