Dark amber pour with decent tan head. Nose is malty with bits of chocolate and caramel. Flavor has hints of bourbon, chocolate, wood, espresso and is mild brown sugar/maple syrup. The Texture is ultra smooth, very great mouthfeel for so much alcohol. Finish is bitter with hops, just makes you want to grab another sip.
