A - beautiful red mahogany, not much head, no lacing.

S- sweet smell, candy like, alcohol

T - butterscotch, raisins, nuts, fruit, with a bourbon tasting warm finish

M - very nice, better than the taste to me

O - not my cup of tea as I don't like big beers, but for those who do, this one is excellent.
