The beer pours a cloudy very dark brown. There is a short, thin, and short-lived head of tan. The aroma is bourbon, honey, vanilla, and toffee. The taste is rich and sweet, floral honey, bourbon, caramel and toffee, some nutty roasted malt, with an oaky astringency on the finish. The beer drinks smooth, round, full-bodied, with just a light touch of tingling carbonation. This is a divine beer.
