Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a snifter. This was bottled a couple months ago.

Appearance: Pours a dark caramel/medium brown with a cherry hue, and leaves a finger of light tan head, which dissipates to a layer around the glass.

Smell: Dark fruits: plums, figs, raisins, mild chocolate, hint of vanilla sweetness.

Taste: Sweet bourbon barrel character upfront, dark fruits, a hint of chocolate, caramel. Well balanced. Drinkability is high.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. I'd like this to be a bit fuller, but not bad. FInishes smooth, and a bit sweet.

Overall: This is a nice, sweet doppelback that took some nice, balanced characteristics from the bourbon barrels. Very drinkable.
