Batch No. 001, Bottled on: 06/15/2012

Pours a hazy garnet color with a tight, off-white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of brown sugar, bourbon, oak, and caramel.

Tastes of sweet malts with some bourbon notes. Lead off with soft caramel and toasted bread notes leading into some oak and vanilla notes. This then leads into some creamy dark fruits with cherries, figs, and dates. Has a bit of a cream sherry type feel to it. An earthy bitterness comes through and rounds things out a bit. Ends with a bit of booze.

Mouthfeel is medium with a creamy amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is tasty, but it needs a bit more bitterness to round it out. I might've sat on it too long.
