3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 capped bottle from Capone’s and Whole Foods. Pours hazy deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, heavy bourbon. Tastes caramel malty, very sweet, with bourbon, oak, molasses, vanilla, and mild hops as it warms. This one successfully straddles the beer/spirit boundary, and reminds me of an Irish Mist/Canadian Mist mixture. Not bad.
