750 mL bottle. Black body with a small khaki head. Smells of whiskey, chocolate, and cinnamon? Something like graham cracker. Tastes of bourbon, sharp and spicy, which is probably why I get cinnamon. It has that graham cracker taste too. Nice. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. Good stout with a nice barrel character.
