This beer pours a mohogany color with a thin but fluffy brown head. the head fades slowly, leaving a decent lacing.

This beer has a great aorma. I get vanilla up front with some chocolate. I detect some bourbon as well. Sweet caramel and roasted malts mix in. All the aromas are mild and blend well.

This beer tastes just like it smells. So well blended. Caramel, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon. This beer is amazing.

The beer is smooth and full bodied. Carbonaton is low, fitting the style. The alcohol is well hidden throughout this beer.

This beer might make a decent session beer, but with a 12.5% ABV, I wouldnt recomend it.

Overall: This beer is a great beer. I decided that I couldnt think of a better day to drink it than on the eve of the first annual Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest. Hopefully they have it on tap tomorrow.
