Poured into a tulip glass.

The beer is a hazy, murky brown color just lighter than tootsie roll but darker than caramel? A mocha colored head stays around for a long while, and thick foamy lacing stays on the glass.

The aroma is bourbon barrel, vanilla, chocolate, and marshmallow creme sweetness.

The taste is a little more smokey or burnt than the aroma, but the same oak and vanilla flavors come out. A nice smooth caramel flavor takes over through the finish taking some edge off of the ABV.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a strong burn on the finish.

Overall, not my favorite style but perhaps my favorite beer of this style. Very flavorful and smooth.
