Bottle shared at Natifest ’13. Poured clear dark orange in color with an average white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sweet malt, vanilla wood and earthy hop aroma. Moderate to heavy smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor to medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a complex beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from BMart - thanks again! Pours a clear, bright orange-amber color with a small ring. Aroma of toffee, oak, peanut brittle, vanilla, some fruit esters, and bourbon. The flavor is a bigger version of the same, with caramel, toffee, dates, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Lighter in color and body than expected, but packs some heat.
