The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with a large light beige pillowy head that was mostly lasting, eventually reducing to a large puddle with a large collar which created excellent sticky spotty lacing.
The aroma was quite robust of a dark bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, molasses, dark chocolate, dark fruit (plums and grapes), a bit of vanilla and a light oaked alcohol scent.
The taste was malty sweet with hints of vanilla, toffee and a bit of molasses from the onset, becoming slightly bitter sweet with a note of dark fruit, a touch of dark chocolate and a big alcohol finish. The flavor lingered for a good long duration after the swallow with a sweet alcohol presence left behind.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond medium in body with a creamy, oily texture and an almost prickly carbonation.
Overall a full tasting brew with a nice woody bourbon finish...
