Purchased at Beverages4Less.

A - Dark as night.. No different than a stout.. Minimal tan head.. That dissipates rather quickly.

S - Bourbon and Vanilla with faint hints of oak . If you enjoy a nicely age bourbon, you're gonna LOVE the smell.

Taste - Bourbon, Vanilla, a hint of liquorice and oak undertones.THIS IS SO FREAKING GOOD!. The alcohol is well hidden, but you can definitely feel it.

Mouthfeel - This is a medium bodied beer. Just right for this blend.

Drinkability - This is a beer to be shared. Drink an entire bottle alone and call it a night. I'm midway through my first pint and I'm feeling rather lovely.

This is a beer that was definitely worth the cost. This beer meets my expectations by supplying me with flavors that I would not expect yet giving me flavors that are enjoyable. This is the definition of craft beer.
