Pour is a dark copper bronze, fairly opaque. Not much head.

Nose is rich and big with apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little brandy.

Taste is absurdly boozy, such strong bourbon taste it bowls you over. Little hint of pumpkin spice, really tough to find other flavors buried under all the booze. Little more ale and pumpkin spice flavor as it warms.

Feel is sticky and medium full.

Wow. Perhaps aged a bit too long in those bourbon barrels. I like a BBA brew, but this is just more boozy than I would like. Gonna give it some time to warm and see if it improves.
