Huge thanks to Meadme for the opportunity!
Slightly hazy dark amber bordering on brown color with a decent sized off white head that quickly dissipates to a ring on the top. Huge aromas of caramel and brown sugar soaked bourbon, with bits of dark fruit like cherries plums raisins and figs. The flavor is sweet but packs a lots of bourbon and alcohol to counter. Brown sugar and caramel with a solid bit of bourbon and hints of vanilla, oak, and dark fruits. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation, and a sweet almost syrupy sharp alcoholic mouthfeel. This beer smells fantastic, and tastes pretty good too, although at 12.5% it does have some rough alcohol edges. I enjoyed sipping on this for most of the night and wish I could spend more nights doing the same thing again.

Pour is cloudy dark burgundy brown with a small amount of light tan head. Lots of bourbon even from a distance. The nose is huge, tons of bourbon, dark malts, caramel, brown sugar, dried figs. Taste is also huge, lots of malt sweetness, not really sugary. Tons of dark fruits with hints of apple, lots of brown sugar and caramel. Bourbon plays in nicely, less prevalent than the nose would have had me believe. Very full body, a hint sugary, soft palate but gets a touch grainy.
