Dark brown color, small beige head. Toffee and caramel dominates the flavor. Medium to full-bodied. Caramel, maybe hints of wood and hops, quite sweet beer. Need ageing certainly.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours darkest Brown/Black with a thin, black coffee tan head. Aroma of heavy, woody bourbon with a mild vanilla. The beer is very full bodied. Amazing thickness and great effect from the barrel aging. Nice thick dryness to finish. Lightly sweet liquorice and roast malt flavours give way to creamy bourbon woodiness. Totally delicious.
