I had this after the Y2K Catastrophe, and this one completely blew it away.
A: Hazy amber-brown, light tan head, good retention, slight lacing.
S: Alcohol with hints of bourbon, very woody, nice caramel.
T: The wood aging really shows, while the bourbon is pleasantly subdued. Some caramel, nut & spice with hints of fruit & dark chocolate. Good bitterness. Alcohol is slightly warming. It's between a 4.5 & a 5, so I'll be generous.
M: Moderate body, slight residual sweetness, carbonation on the low side of moderate.
D: An awesome sipper.
Serving type: bottle
