Dark, viscous, and impressively balanced beer. All three major elements of this brew come together in perfect harmony - the sweet creaminess of the oatmeal, the dry, roasty Russian imperial, tied together by a strong boubon presence.

Certainly one to warm the cockles of your heart on a chilly night.

Strong bourbon nose. Very smooth mouthfeel. Bourbon is very evident in the taste, but so incredibly smooth and compliments the excellent base beer well. A great drink, and one to savor!
