Pours a dark brown colour with a very small thin white head.

The smell is dark fruits plums and figs with a bourbon sweetness.

The taste is much like the smell,first come up the bourbon, followed by the dark fruit and just a small bit if alcohol on the finish.

The mouthfeel is full and syrupy with medium carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer, tastes great and smells amazing.

Deep and rich dried fig brown, nice cloudiness. half finger of quickly fading off white head.

boozy caramel on the nose, a hint of sweet rose.

Big figgy, brown sugary malt and sweet, very soft hint of sour cherry. Rich bourbon at the finish.

Thick and full mouthfeel. Chewy almost.

Quite wonderful, definitely a sipper. Better a bit warmer.
