Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a clear deep amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma had caramel with sweet grain and a nice bourbon backing. Flavor was quite sweet with caramel and toffee and a bourbon note coming out in the finish. A bit sweet.

"Not really a brown ale anymore in anything other than color. Big, rich, sticky, and sweet, though some toasted characteristics still there. Not very hot for how strong it is! Lots of vanilla and oak, with less brandy, and even less brown ale. Quite good if you dig the barrels."

phaleslu (9249) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small beige head. Notes of leaves, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, and even some earthy hops. Warming alcohol. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Just the right amount of booze, malt, and roast. Great beer.
