Appearance: Deep reddish amber color, moderate carbonation and head.

Smell: Distinct wood essence from being aged in bourbon barrels, with notes of sweet malt.

Taste: Hits you with the bourbon flavor right away, giving way to smoky malt flavors and slight bitterness from hops, and ending with noticeable, lingering warm alcohol taste. Overall flavor profile reminiscent of whiskey (not surprising considering the bouroun barrel aging).

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thin mouthfeel considering strength, though not watery. Smooth feel on the palate.

Overall: An interesting seasonal, very strong whiskey-like flavors and a noticeable alcohol afterburn. Bourbon flavor works well with smoky malts. An intense beer for when you're in the mood for that kind of thing; not to be taken lightly, but a good antidote for a chilly winter night.
