Dark brown with a thin off white head.

All Bourbon.

Malt and wood that could be fitting for a stout. Toffee and dark fruit, not so chocolatey or desserty. Good bite on the end from the hops, I assume.

Cola-esque, pleasant.

Exactly what I was looking for! The essence and body of the winter warmer was not overpowered by barrel characteristics. A great offering from Rahr & Sons and perfect for a cold night. Definitely living up to its name!
