look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Wow! Poured aggresively from a 12 oz into a tulip and got 1", of tan head, that left in seconds but laced nicely. The color was a medium to dark amber that was clear, with a good amount of "falling" carbonation.

The aroma is raisons, dark cherries, vanilla and "BANG" in your nose BOURBON! WOW!

The taste was not complex, just like it smelled, then comes a little alcohol taste and a dry finish! Glad it finished dry because upfront this is sweet but not coyingly so.

The Mouthfeel is medium to slightly thick, but clean and warming and dry at the end.

Overall, try this one! You won't know what your missing until you do. It has an 11% ABV so one is all you'll need to go with a sirloin or a filet mignon, potatoes and a citrus fruit laden salad with bitter greens and a raspberry vinegrette. I opened this one cooking the above and finished it at supper. I was NOT disapointed. I will revisit it often.
