Very sweet, brown sugar flavors. Unbelievably thick sticky mouth feel, possibly thicker than BCBS. Absolutely wonderful. My only problem is the bourbon. I generally hate BBA beers that are not stouts. Although there was a lot of bourbon here, I though it was pretty
well balanced with the sweetness and body this beer offers.

Light brown in color. Subtle bourbon nose. Nice body and solid bourbon flavor. Sweet note on the finish. Tastes like a slightly lighter version of a top-tier barrel-aged barleywine.
