12 oz bottle courtesy of clewis901 pours a hazed brown color with a light tan head. Nice lacing and average retention.

Nose is an awesome combo of bourbon, wood, vanilla and toffee. Very nice.

Taste has a TON of bourbon and wood notes. The malt is lighter than I thought and the alcohol very smooth. It is a really nice beer. Quite a bit better than the regular CW BBB. The sweetness gives it a nice balanced feel. Vanilla/coconut undertones come out as it warms. Tasty stuff!
