8.1%ABV, huge off white foamy head upon pouring, and a dark amber color like mahogany or cherry wood finish on a piece of classic furniture. As you might expect the aroma is "woody" and "smoky," courtesy of the barrel aging which no doubt also contributes to its color. As far as flavor, what some reviewers have mistaken as "astringent," i'll chalk up to bourbon residue. If you swallow slowly and give the flavors a chance to develop over your tongue, look for hints of vanilla and caramel.
