  • Poured clear into my crystal brandy glass. Foam, retention, and lacing were really not there.

    Aroma is nothing short of fantastic. Bourbon is slight but still a vital part of the aroma as well as aromas associated: vanilla and oak. Sweet malts and dark fruits round it out.

    Taste is sweet malt with the bourbon coming on. Vanilla, oak, and bourbon play nicely in the middle to the end.

    Big body with not much, if any, carbonation. Creamy in the mouth.

    For the alcohol and bourbon this beer is ridiculously smooth. Definitely a sipping beer to be enjoyed but doesn't show itself too large that you couldn't follow one up by another.
