look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A coppery pour leads to a dark ruby-ice tea coloring in the vessel. A creamy, frothy tan head is sturdy at one finger high while a head strong carbonation factor showing a rush of golden micro-beads, densely packed and rushing feverishly upward to rebuild the head. Retention was resilient, providing a thick sheet lacing.

S: Nice touch of burbon barell woodiness, tea with some herbal notes and dry malt.

T: Boozy dry caramel, apple, burbon and oak woodiness are the fine highlights here. Warm toasted richiness, toffee, cola, with a hint of toasted coconut and caramel/butterscotch. Alcohol is nicely balanced, evident but not overwhelming with the 12% blending beautifully with the rich malty flavors. Bite of cough medicine alcohol upon warming.

M: Malty mouthful, boozy, lightly syrupy with a slippery smooth texture.

O: Overall, boozy, solidly brewed. clean making for a smooth malt bomb to sip slowly by the fireplace on a wintery night.
