Opaque dark brown color. Texture is shiny and thin like it's been aged.

Smell is strong sugar but has a slight cleaner smell from the alcohol. Seems it rummified a bit. Moderate bourbon note. Slight burned candy aND a hint of roasted notes.

More Dubbel less barrel age. Moderate bourbon note mixes with the sugary belgian notes and gives off bits of dark fruit notes.

Heavy body but with a nice and slight thinness. Very smooth and extremely silky. With very little carbonation but enough to give it texture.

Fantastic and pretty good go for it.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours dark and a slightly viscous brown with a thin ring of head. Smells deeply of sweet bourbon, dark chocolate, and cocoa. Heavy with molasses and vanilla aromas from the barrel. Sweet malt and some brown sugar round out the aromas. The taste is quite malty and sweet, with a welcome edge of slightly sour wood. Lots of molasses on the finish, but also nice chocolate and roasty flavors. The bourbon itself is subtle and well integrated. Very smooth, and very enjoyable overall.
