CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by ryan: pours an oily opaque with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel and chocolate nose with good vanilla Bourbon character. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet dark malts and chocolate with lots of bourbon and vanilla oak before a drier slightly warming finish. True to style and complex.
