Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours clear amber with a transient off-white head. Aroma is hints of bourbon with some vanilla. Near med body. Flavor is light caramel with some vanilla.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dark golden orange appearance with a big foamy, off white head. Creamy, a bit corny, lemon, light vanilla aroma. A bit tangy, a bit strong, fairly smooth woody, grainy, pale malty, vanilla flavor. Not a ton from the oak (nothing bourbon that I can detect) but a pretty decent brew. I can see myself getting WBW on this in Iowa City.
