Pours coffee colored with half inch of cream colored foam. Nose has notes of caramel, coffee, malt, oak, and spices. Palate is silky with slight effervescence in the mouth with a strong finish. Taste is pleasant with notes of chocolate, coffee, finishing strong with oaked bourbon. This is a great beer that can appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts.
