look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Deep brown, but not quite black. Some light. 1 finger tan head settles into a soft ring. Oily lacing.

S- Roasted oats, charred dark fruits of figs and black cherries. Not a tone of barrel character coming thru on the nose. Reminds me some of Stone IRS with the licorice. Some sharp notes cut through.

T- Just like the nose, but with some intense sugary sweetness. Vanilla and oak on the back end as the barrel finally steps up to the plate, and it does so in a pretty big way with the bourbon. Some brown sugar maybe. A little cloying at times. Mouth is syrupy and sticky. Probably due to the intense amount of sweet malt and sugars added here. Warmth in the back of the throat.

O- Pretty good. A little sweeter than I like. Prefer the style to have more roast and nutty character.
