Appears a mahogany toned brown with a small, off-white cap that fades into a mild layer and heavy collar. Tons of scattered lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of toffee, broubon, caramel, vanilla, raisins, cream, brown sugar...similar to a glazed sticky bun with a spritz of bourbon.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with tons of creamy caramel, toffee, broubon, vanilla, tobacco, and perhaps even a touch of cocoa.
Mouthfeel is of slight heat in the mouth, along with sweet raisins and toffee, which linger with a warming welcomeness of booziness and tobacco, along with a touch of spiced gingerbread in the swallow. Hell, yeah!
