3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a dark mahogany color with aromas of chocolate, light dark fruit, some vanilla, light brandy and whisky. Flavors were the same, smooth aftertaste, smooth as hell, extremely drinkable for such a high abv. These guys are firing on all cylinders on each beer I’ve had from them.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler from Ale Yeah!, from the Burnt Hickory tasting. Pours dark, mahogany with a substantial, frothy, beige head. The aroma is figs and dark cherries up front, with some notes of red wine. Lots of caramel, vanilla, and oak in the finish. The flavor is sticky and sweet, with lots of alcohol, wood and earthy notes. Very heavy body, sticky, and very warming, like a good desert wine. The warm, fruitiness up front and the smooth, candy and whiskey notes in the finish work well together to make an excellent, immense beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the growler an opaque chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent light buff head that leaves some good lacing. Strong aroma has a core of brandy-infused oak plus notes of pear, banana, caramel and horehound. Flavor is fruity, woody - HOLY GUACAMOLE, ALCOHOL BITE LIKE A P---ED OFF ROTTWEILER - with subtle caramel and earthy notes. Texture is firm and smooth, yet quite fizzy and edgy, and leaves a woody, fruity, bourbon finish.
