Really dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma has warming bourbon, caramel, sweet malts, slight butterscotch but also a weird dirty rag note that I get with some sniffs. Taste starts with slightly astringent roasted malt, warning booze, slightly bitter roasted malt. Finishes with a bit of coffee bitterness but overall it's a bit underwhelming considering the hype and also the body is not as heavy as I would like it to be.
