Review from notes. Thanks to Shane for this one!

A: Pours a reddish/brown color with a small tan head on top. The head lasts for a few moments before dissipating to a thin coating on top. Minimal lacing.

S: Lots of bourbon upfront, some vanilla, brown sugar, and caramel. A little bit of dark fruit comes out, more so as it warms. Some bready malt as well.

T: Lots of caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla on the flavor profile. The bourbon comes through and there is a sweetness on the finish.

T: Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Slight heat.

O: Another great BA beer from Central Waters, have enjoyed pretty much everything I have tried from them.
