The deepest shade of amber I could imagine is showcased by this beer. Caramel, Vanilla, rasin, and something that brings me to french toast in the aroma. More caramel in the taste, the oak is present and the bourbon is not overpowering; great balance. Heavy, slick mouthfeel with trace amounts of alcohol. This beer is desserty and the malt charecteristics really shine through.
