On tap at Frisco Taphouse. Brown with an amber tint. Very little head. Oaky, bourbon aroma with cherries and chocolate. Big malty start. A lot of bourbon flavor, oak barrel, raisins and vanilla. Very flavorful and complex.

Bottle courtesy of Lectvay, thanks a million! Beautiful copper pour with a light beige head. Aromas of oak, bourbon, dates, raisins, brown sugar, plums, and fig. I wish I had a candle that smelled like this beer it smells incredible! Taste is sweet dark fruits at first with notes of vanilla and molasses. Slight pipe tobacco notes in there as well. Just amazing. Slightly warming from the abv in the finish but just the right amount. A true gem.
