This beer pours molasses-thick and is nearly the same color. Drinks with an excellent balance of brown/burnt sugar and smokey malts with a distinct bourbon kick. At 11.6%, it's bold but not at all overwhelming. Totally smooth with a well rounded finish more befitting of a great single malt than a beer.

All around this is a wonderful beer that I highly recommend if your local beer place is resourceful enough to stock.
