look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle from Belmont Station. Reviewed from notes.

A: Ruddy mahogany with a firm creme colored head. Some particles land on the glass when this is swirled.

N: Caramel, vanilla, malt, oak, and toffee. Bourbon is well-integrated. Brown sugar, honey, and syrup. Some cola. Has a lot of rich flavors.

T: Tastes of bourbon mixed with a round sweetness and a tempering bitterness. Lots of flavors of the wood are showing through here. DOesn't destroy the palate, and that's a good thing.

M: Not as heavy as expected, and there's a high amount of carbonation which I don't enjoy. Alcohol is somewhat pronounced.

O: A very solid beer that seems to be missing a little extra oomph. Enjoying it, even if it reminds me a bit of a low-end bourbon.
