Aroma of wood, bourbon, vanilla, faint smokiness, caramel. Taste sweet marshmallow, bourbon, vanilla, oak, malt, ABV. Nice!

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter glass.

A: Deep murky brown with almost non existent head. Zero lacing.

S: Caramel, sweet malts, bourbon.

T: Caramel, dark fruits, and bourbon. Some subtle hints of oak.

M: A bit thinner than I was expecting but still enjoyable. Almost no carbonation to the point of being flat.

O: Nice brew. The flavors are enjoyable and the 13% alcohol is fairly well hidden, but it lacks in carbonation.
