Cloudy brown, thin white head with some lacing. A tad sweet, plenty of malt, no bitterness or booziness. So damn good, I wish I could drink it all the time.

Pours to a rich Amber body with a short dark tan head. Nose really sweeps me off my feet with tons of rich malt and sexy sweet bourbon notes. Toffee Carmel and sweet malt are so imbrassive to the wonderful smell. With first sip you get honey comb sweet bourbon notes and toffee. Dark fruits and sugar cookies dance on the palate as well. This is a very malty brew but in such a good way. Rich and slightly spicy on the finish. Wow, I wish I had a cellar full of this one as this will undoubtedly age with charm.
