    APPEARANCE – A cherry red color with a ¼ inch head on it that lingers good bit of bubbles from the bottom of the glass.  Nice lacing, like a curtain. 


    AROMA- Strong oak and bourbon aromas.  Hit of roast malts 


    TASTE – Bourbon right off the bat, like carbonated bourbon.  Even in the after taste and on my breath I taste the alcohol.  Also good bit of earthiness as well. 


    MOUTHFEEL – smooth, but a little thick.  Very light on the carbonation, but it lets you know it is there. 


    CONCLUSION – Interesting beer, not an everyday beer but very good.  I could see sitting down and sipping on this while puffing on my pipe or a good cigar.
