Kind of a strange brew that grew on me. The aroma had a lot of the barrel. The flavor had a bit of butterscotch. Burn hits the throat mid swallow.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [from trade with iggywh] @ home. Clear orange color, average to medium sized fizzy white to off-white head that completely disappears very quickly. Aroma is malts, bourbon, vanilla. Taste malts, bourbon, vanilla, booze, caramelised sugar and honey. Mostly dominant is the boozy honey-sweetish vanilla. Unfortunately that’s not exactly what I like, guess I should have read the commercial deScription a bit better. Happy to have tried it though. Average to decent body, slight oily yet sort of thin texture, a bit fizzy carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, Faysal, Mike G, and PQ. Clear medium golden, average white head. Aroma has notes of vanilla and honey and sherry, with hot alcohol fumes. Very sweet, with loads of buttery oak, vanilla, honey, cooked pineapple, very heavy mouthfeel, low bitterness, warming alcohol in the finish. Quite alcoholic, but a nice sipper to be shared.

April 14, 2016 - bottle from Sage, 2015 vintage. Orange pour with limited head. Aroma was sweet caramel, vanilla, wood and some spice. Some fruit came out in the aroma as it warmed. Taste was nicely balanced with the sweetness from caramel, vanilla and toffee, but also has nice amount of wood and mild bitterness.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light toffee color. Smells and tastes like candy caramel. Good if you like candy I guess, but I like beer and donnot have an American sweet tooth.
