Aromas of tobacco, star anise and a vanilla-wood-alcohol punch of the bourbon barrels in which it was aged. Semi-sweet chocolate, treacle and a trace of dried blackberry flavors combine with vanilla and leather on the palate to deftly hide it’s bracing alcohol content. Viscous but never cloying, soft wood tannins and alcohol spiciness balance this beer’s formidable body.
