Bottle # 161/461 thanks to lumpy. Nice pretty deep amber reddish color with a ring of canvas colored bubbles for a head. Nose is vanilla, boubon, caramel, and some citrus. Taste is the same with a thick long finish. Solid beer but extended barrel time is better for the yeti.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle brought back from the brewery in Denver after the 2008 Great American Beer Festival. Shared with jarspag and Maheu in Mammoth, January 09. This sh*t is dank! You better be a friend of the creature to enjoy this bad boy. Pours a deep bronze with some white swirls and no head. Immediate stank of bourbon whiskey and oak barrel, along with vanilla, coconut, cocoa and a boatload of caramel. Damn! The flavor is smothered in whiskey barrel and more vanilla, flying head on into a big hot and boozy finish...but I like it! Lasting alcohol warmth and a full body makes this a true winter warmer to be sipped slowly at near room-temperature. Yes sir!
