5/1/2012

A: Pours black and viscous with a small bubbly head.

S: Toffee blends with brown sugar, fudge, and vanilla. Bourbon is really powerful and I get a little oak. Really nice aroma.

T: Bourbon, brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. It's very sweet but damn delicious. There's a lot of vanilla and a little oak. There's a low level of bitterness with accompanying earth. The finish is boozy and decadent.

M: Lower full body with low carbonation.

Overall: This was boozy but had excellent barrel character. Delicious.
