Bottle. Pours an all dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is a bourbon bomb. Packed with toffee, vanilla, coconut, so rich, coffee, chocolate, toast, prunes, dark fruits. This beer is all changed. Taste is like drinking bourbon without the booze. Vanilla, wood, coconut, dark fruits, toffee, caramel, light bitter chocolate, burnt malts. Full body, toasty finish, very subtle hops. Just very well executed and drinkable. Warming feel.
