- A dark pouring medium-bodied beer with a creamy tan head
- A big, big (did I say big?) bourbon nose...to tell the truth, so big as to almost be offputting to some
- Reportedly at 6.2% ABV, this beer starts out seemingly harmless as it hits the lips and front of the mouth rather timidly
- Then, the body and the bourbon flavors build in the middle to the back of the mouth
- Licorice, oak, vanilla, and birch flavors are also present
- An alcohol warming which isn't over the top (or maybe it's just the fooling of the bourbon)
- This beer is such a treat to sip and explore....slowly
- Being on nitrogen, it was best served at the pub and not in a take-home growler.
