Pours a brown mahogany in color w/ a 1/2 finger off white head that left medium lacing. Fantastic aromas of oak, vanilla, bourbon, butterscotch, and brown sugar. The flavor was of butterscotch/brown sugar sweetness up front, transitioning to oak/vanilla/bourbon, and finishing w/ hop bitterness. Medium bodied and lush w/ appropriate carbonation. Definite sipper! Pretty boozy, but nice to contemplate your thoughts with.
Overall, very enjoyable brew! This one could be all-world w/ a few years of age in the cellar, as it was a bit hot for my liking.
