Poured a clear amber color with no visible bubble... still in fact. Aromas were sweet vanilla, winey, nutty and boozy. Taste was alot of the same rich mouthfeel with a bit cloying but a perfect dessert beer. Really getting the fortified madierized merlot barrel. Very complex not something id want a pint of but rather a small snifter after a light meal.

Wood clad barrel pour at Churchkey. Poured a dark amber color, slightly off-white head, plenty of lacing. Aroma was notes of malt, with a touch of hazelnut. Touch of sour notes, with some sweet malts. Interesting brew.

Draft at the Birch. A reddish-brown beer with no head whatsoever. The initial impression borders on the sour region, but ends up being somehow sugary yet not very sweet. With little to no carbonation it is easy to drink and non-filling. Mellow drinker. (#4694, 7/14/2012)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes from my iPhone. On tap @ Purple Pig. Slightly hazy golden amber with a very wispy fine head. Aroma is of sweet cereal, lightly spicy, and with more of a buckwheat aroma than anything nutty. Creamy soft mouthfeel, flavours of dates, light spice, vague fruit (quince maybe?). Again, nothing distinctly nutty, but a pleasant ale nonetheless.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Reddish brown with a small white head. Nose is fruity and nutty, some spice (nutmeg?), cranberry, wood. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests, maple syrup, cinnamon, toasty malts. Medium bodied, a little sticky on the tongue.
