Pours a brownish almost black color with tan head. Nose is coffee, toffee, smoked wood, molasses and brown sugar. Taste is lightly smoked wood, toffee, vanilla, alcohol, maple brown sugar and light molasses.

My god CCB does it again. Amazing. Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma is really wonderful. Tons of bourbon, toffee, vanilla, oak and dark dried fruit. Flavor is loaded with smooth oak and bourbon notes, some vanilla, caramel, light smoke and holy hell what a mouthfeel. This one is a big step up from the regular big sound. WOW. But what do I konw, I am just a homer.
