A: Poured into a snifter to a deep brown with a finger of light tan head that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of toffee and caramel with some fruity notes along with a nice hit of bourbon barrel goodness with some oak and vanilla
T: Taste is toffee and caramel with oak, light chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and hints of raisins. Swallow is more oak, toffee, vanilla, caramel, and fruitiness.
M: This beer is thick and chewy on the palate with a very nice level of carbonation and a dry finish.
O: Ho-ly shit. This beer is off the chain. I can't put into words how amazing this beer is tasting. Great base beer, nice and well integrated barrel notes and it all plays so well together it should be illegal. If you have one of these still you owe it to yourself to drink it.
