The description said "bitter and roasty flavor" and it didn't lie! The mouth-feel seems surprisingly 'thin' for the ABV, which seems well-hidden (to my tongue).
I did choose to brew it 'at standard' the first time around (to rate the kit 'as is').
If I were to brew this again, I would definitely (at a minimum) secondary it on some good whiskey or bourbon soaked oak chips ... may ponder some other tweaks to take it to the next level.
