Served in a snifter with about 1 finger of head. Pours very dark with hints of red. Has a very rich and buttery fragrance. Very complex flavor profile of vanilla, cinnamon, earthy fruits, and bourbon. Can taste the 14.9% ABV. Surprisingly carbonated mouth feel for the high alcohol. Overall a very good beer, but at times the complexity of the flavor can be overwhelming and hard to distinguish taking away some from the experience.
