When consumed right away there is a strong bourbon presence to the beer. The aroma is boozey chocolate and oak from the barrels. The body is thick but velvet smooth on the tongue and in the mouth. The flavor is richness; chocolate caramel and vanilla followed by a wonderful bourbon heat that just warms the throat and stomach. This is a fireside beer winter warmer and it is delicious.
