Tap sample at MBGSF 2015. Poured clear brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy fruit, toasted sweet malt, bourbon alcohol and vanilla wood aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy fruit bourbon vanilla sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.
