very nice rusted brown color. everything out of the tap has a great head on top, as it usually does....smell is utterly divine. not the best bourbon barrel aged aroma I have smelled (or tried) but very very nice. lots of bourbon boozy aroma and flavor, some sweet Belgian sugars. very smooth and some nice lacing as the tulip is tilted.... i'm surprised I am the first to review this one.... usually 84uclabrewn is a couple of steps ahead of me on everything...
