Dark brown, almost black with a nice tan head that dissapates pretty quickly. Leaves some good lacing.
I get the chocolate and vanilla first, followed by a bit of the spices, then some roasted malts and sweetness. Very complex, though I'm not really picking up on the bourbon barrels in the aroma. Super tasty smelling though for sure.
I definitely get more in the flavor of what is advertised on the bottle. Still leads off with the sweet chocolate and vanilla, but this time with some of the bourbon and oak, but not in a hot or boozy way. The spices are more mixed in with the flavor than on the back end like I'd usually prefer, and kind of detract a tad from the other flavors, but not too bad. The roast is a tad bitter, but adds good complexity.
Moderate to heavy body, but not especially thick like I would expect from the style. Slightly elevated carbonation too, giving it a little more of a bite than a creamy feel. It's nice and refreshing, but not really what I prefer for the style.
Very good, but not as good as I was hoping. There is definitely a lot going on, but some of it doesn't quite mesh, which makes me think a little aging might benefit this one. For now though, it's still really good and one I'd get again. The alcohol is definitely well hidden in this one, so it's a tough one to not want to drink down like a delicious dessert.
