Bottle thanks to timfoolery. Dark off-brown pour, with a thin light tan head. Sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, chocolate, plum, and light bourbon. Very smooth, the barrel aging is well done, and little to no booziness. Actually easy drinking for what it is. Good.

Bottle @ Ratman’s, courtesy of forgetfu. Thanks Bill! Pours a fairly cheat dark brown appearance with a very thin tan head. Mild whiskey, toffee, somewhat herbal, light veggie, chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate, coconut, german chocolate cake, vanilla, a touch fruity, caramel flavor. Flavor is very nice but the aroma leaves something to be desired.
