A- pitch black with a 1/2 finger caramel colored head. A true glass stainer.

S- Huge bourbon notes from a couple feet away. Vanilla, oak, soaked wood. Touch of caramel.

T- Intensely sweet gets things off and running. Bourbon follows next with the vanilla. Charred malts find their way in late. Not sure how much honey was added, but does seem to be easily detectable.

M- Maybe a bit thinner than expected, but still coats nicely. Mid to full body.

O- a nice balance of the barrel notes. Not over done. Probably a little sweeter and lighter body than I prefer on the style, but few flaws in this one
