A - Pours a hazy dark ruby red color with thin lacing, minimal carbonation, and very viscous looking.

S - Bourbon, toasted caramel, toffee, vanilla, and oak.

T - Lots of toasted toffee, vanilla, caramel, oak, and bourbon from start to finish. Alcohol effervescence is prominent along with alcohol warming, light citrus bitterness at the very end and lingering alcohol warmth.

M - Thick, full body, sticky, carbonation is silky smooth.

O - Very boozy and complex.

Had the 2013 release, so roughly 1.5 years of age on it. It drank exquisitely, with almost the perfect amount of bourbon flavor and smell backed by a solid malt backbone. Highly recommended seeking this beer out.
