Bottle thanks to Tom. Dark copper pour with beautiful white head. Aroma of rich bourbon, spices, banana, light clove, toffee, vanilla, quite complex. Taste is sweet but not cloying, great balance of hoppiness and malty sweetness, flavor is rich with just the right (ridiculous) amount of alcohol. Well made stuff.
