Glass Used: Imperial glass

Appearance: A deep Grade B Maple syrup color; thick pour with a few mils thin head.

Smell: For me, I got a huge whiff of praline & carmelization with oak & some bourbon with the vapor of the alcohol.

Taste: Perfectly balanced bourbon and oak upfront, finishing with a sweet soft bourbon and what I can only describe as homemade butterscotch (not the candy). Though the alcohol is present in the aftertaste, it's not harsh.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation and smooth.

Overall: This is a complex and well crafted beer. I absolutely love everything about this one and will revisit an aged bottle this time next year.
