color is a dark caramel, some big bubbles visible in the beer and pours a solid finger of brown foam, wonderful lacing left on the side of the glass.
Aroma-dark fruit, burned sugar, vanilla,oak
Taste-burned sugar and dark fruity sweetness upfront, balanced by smooth vanilla and oak, faintest bite from the booze but drinks very smoothly.
Feel-moist upfront, full bodied yet surprisingly carbonated.
overall-delicous, satisfying, great representative of the style. love the effect of the oak on this one.
