4.35/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a bottle, chilled to about 45 degrees and poured into a crystal mug, it pours a chestnut color with a 1/4" white sticky head atop of a full-bodied brew with lots of sediment floating around the glass...pretty gnarley!

Aroma is lots of caramel and vanilla malts, piggy-backed by the smell of raisons or plums throughout. I also get the overall bourbon aroma, as the alcohol tingles my nose...this is no joke! Not much hops that i can sense, but they may be there.

Taking a sip reveals a sweet banana existance, along with some vanilla oak malts. The alcohol burn is insane on the tongue, and the bourbon is very potent as it permeates through my taste buds and my sinuses..wow, tasty! The bourbon really comes through to me at this point.

Aside from the alcohol burn, it is very smooth. Not much carbonation to this one. I think I have to drink this one like a glass of brandi or bourbon...one sip at a time...body is full and sucks you in.

Overall, good luck drinking more than one or two...I could drink another if i had it, since the taste is so great, but I probably couldn't operate a toaster if I did. ;)

Enjoy this one!!!
