look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Dark brown body with a caramel two-fingered thick head.
S: Bourbon. Bourbon. Bourbon. And yeah, some quality booze (there are some booze that are not good at the nose, but this one is), vanilla and only some hops in the back.
T: Bourbon. Bourbon. Bourbon. And yeah, some coffee due to the high rostiness of the malt and maybe some chocolate I guess.
M: Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. The 82 IBUs mixed with this British Yeast makes it so soft in mouth, while a bit smoothly harsh in the sip and then it dries your mouth out. This is just fantastic.

O: I don't know what to say - This is probably the best beer I've ever had. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Bourbon. Awesome.
