ABV: 40% ABV

Nose: Sweet almond, toffee, caramel and root beer barrel candies. Honey, toasted nuts and sweet syrupy molasses. Overall, very sweet, but no heat and no astringency. 

Taste: Thin mouth feel, still no heat. Sweet toffee, pecans, caramel and more syrupy sweetness. The continuation of the sugar-y root beer candy is interesting. Overall, no astringency, very little oak body. Not bitter.

Finish: Short, loaded wtih cocoa, toffee and caramel. No heat.

Overall: Thin overall and very sweet, but not terrible. This is more enjoyable than the US counterpart.
