Dark red appearance with little head. Slightly sweet aroma with a little cinnamon accent. Taste is also a slightly sweet with a touch of cinnamon and apple.

500ml bottle served in a snifter. Bought it at a liquor store in CA during a vacation last year. Don't see a date -- just 2018 release.

Pours a murky reddish brown with a small head. Smell is bourbon barrels.

Taste is bourbon barrels and a surprisingly strong red ale flavor. Caramel malts and toffee. Strong vanilla and oak.

Mouthfeel is medium to thick, slightly slick. Overall, I like it.

Cloudy amber brown with thin white head

Nose: Bourbon, caramelized sugar, cinnamon in the nose

Taste follows the nose with toasted caramel notes, bourbon, oak, vanilla, and cassia. Finishes fairly sweet.

Feel: Smooth, medium body. Low carbonation.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a beautiful dark brown. Fairly murky. Looks like a nice barleywine upon first glance. Nose is dark fruit, bourbon, port, and toffee. Taste is caramel, bourbon, and dark fruit. Fairly sweet on the taste - perhaps a bit syrupy. My only complaint is that the sweetness is a bit high, but it's still very smooth. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall, a fantastic beer.
