Murky dark brown in color. A fingernail of khaki colored head covers the majority of the top. Sweet aroma of bourbon absolutely dominates the nose. There's plenty of dark malt in there as well. The flavor is very much dominated by sweet bourbon. There's more than enough dark malt in the mix. The mouth is very thick and sticky.

i really enjoyed this. looks darker than i thought, and smells of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and dark fruits. taste is much the same with a little heat on the back end. as boozy as this is, i expected it to be moreso, well done.

From a bottle dated July, 17, 2014 into a Firestone Walker Snifter.

L- Pours very dark...appears red when held to the light. Nice straw colored head of fine bubbles that fades pretty quick leaving a thick ring around the glass.

S- Dark fruits and toffee...sweet bubblegum? Caramel, figs.

T- Very sticky sweet caramel candy, prunes, char, oak, figs, cocoa. Wow, just so much going on, every drink holds something new...big booze burn on the finish that hangs around for a bit, not really hot, just enough to remind you it's there.

F- Think velvet....

O- A fabulous beer with extraordinary flavors and a great nose. The heat is a bit noticeable, not overpowering just noticeable...and I think that brings it down a notch or two.

This bottle was too hot for my tastes. It had the standard quad flavors I was looking for for an instant and then it was all alcohol. All complexity was lost.
