Murky rustic deep burnt orange, no lasting head. Delightfully heady aroma of light chocolate, bourbon soaked vanilla, and some oak. Flavor is delightful, assertive, and somehow refrained. Boozy, but not overpowering. Has a nice oak quality that also has some boozy vanilla, while also allowing some chocolaty cereal grains to come through. Delicious and malty and just the right touch of boozy oaky vanilla. Wonderful.
