Pours an amber brown color with a thin khaki colored head. The head disappears almost immediately, leaving a thin swirl of foam clinging to the edges of the glass. A small amount of spotty lacing.

The taste is very similar to the aroma. Sweet toffee malts blend into a soft vanilla with a hint of bourbon. A sweet dark fruit, possible raisin or prune brings in the finish. Some warmth on the finish from the higher abv.
Medium body with light carbonation. Dry on the palate with a syrupy sweetness.
An amazing beer with sweet, complex, enjoyable flavors. If you like this style beer, this one is going to be hard to beat! A great winter beer that I look forward to having again! Try one!
