A: pours a deep brown into a DFH snifter topped bu a nfinger and a half of dense light tan head that retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of vanilla, caramel, booze, stone fruit and toffee
T: taste is a little wood, caramel, vanilla, alcohol, fruitiness, a little more wood, and toffee. swallow is a little alcohol, caramel, vanilla, toffee and a little more wood with a lingering sweet stone fruit
M: thick and a little chewy with soft carbonation and a drying finish
O: big, boozy and complex with good flavors but not a lot of heat or burn. Another great beer from The Bruery.

A beer lacking the barrel character of the whiskey/bourbon barrel aged brew that is more available.

There's a woody midpalate that offers "bright" flavors of oak. Not much vanilla. Hugely sweet of caramel and toffee throughout with good complexities.
