Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears black and nearly opaque in the glass with dark plum colored edges and a two finger beige head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.

Smokey, robust aroma with a nice oak/barrel presence but the spirit has faded quite a bit. Charred oak/toothpick countered by burnt malt, ash and charcoal along with subtle bourbon and presence.

Viscous full body with prominent dark roasted malt that lingers throughout. Smokey with charcoal, burnt toast, dark chocolate and oatmeal countered by sweet, luscious dark fruit notes. Nice barrel presence with spicy bourbon, vanilla and oak along with wintery spice and seet chocolate notes. Well balanced and easy to drink with a slightly dry finish.

Pours a dense brown body, very thick dark brown head. Aroma is syrupy with coffee infused bourbon. Smooth feel, strong coffee mixes perfectly with bourbon, low roasted flavor profile.
