Mahogany colored pour with a khaki head. The nose has a very strong wood aroma and tons of bourbon. Nice vanilla, chocolate, and nut aromas. Some toffee and caramel sweetness along with a hint of raisin. The flavor is dominated by bourbon. Great vanilla, chocolate, wood, and caramel flavors. A slight nuttiness, nice sweet malt, and a warming finish.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
At 38 Degrees Ale House in Alhambra, CA
Appearance: Pours a deep ruby with a creamy tan cap that subsides to white edges. While sitting on the table it looks dark, when you lift it up to ambient light, it’s fairly translucent.

Aroma: Alcohol, apples, cherry, wood.

Taste: Burnt caramel, toast,alcohol, spicy hop, oak, spicy candy apple.

Mouthfeel: Thick, syrupy with modest carbonation.

Overall: Another tasty, boozy sipper. I’ve had this a few years ago at a festival, and don’t remember it being this big, boozy and bold.
