Pours clear with about an inch of tan foam. Retention is quick with minimal to no lacing.
Aroma is roasted malt up front. Next comes a big wave of bourbon, vanilla, and sultry oak. Molasses as a main source of sweetness ebbs it way through also.
Taste is mostly oak, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, and sweetness. A roasted value is there too. I don't get much of a usual brown that I was expecting.
Mouth is thinner: maybe medium at best with low carbonation too.
A nice beer that has some good points, I just think it makes me think more porter than brown. The sweetness is a bit much as it seem unbalanced. Some age might do this good. Definitely smooth for what is in it. Enjoy!
