Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Treacle aroma. Med + body. Flavor is bourbon/vanilla and treacle. Brown sugar. Finishing on the sweet side, but not very. Not bitter. Moderate bourbon/treacle finish. Seems to have aged long enough to smooth down the bourbon. Very tasty.

What a pleasant surprise - barrel influence is there in this blonde ale, but seems light in comparison to other barrel roll beers. Fruity aroma and flavor with moderate undertones of vanilla and oak, and just a touch of yeast. Smooth and tasty.
The buttered popcorn Fallen Leag has been the only beer in this series that was less than very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Albany Taproom. It pours a very cloudy burnt orange color with an off white head. The aroma is butterscotch, vanilla, apricots and golden raisins. The flavor has a huge bourbon, vanilla and wood influence with some caramel, tart apricot and butterscotch. The finish is overpowering with lots of alcohol and vanilla. Not terrible, but probably not something I’d order again.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is initially fruity, but later the bourbon comes on long & strong. This is interesting. Lots of fruit, mostly orange but tons of bourbon as well and a bit of old paint feel as well. An ever-changing beer, which changes my opinion from sip to sip. Overall, quite tasty, just a tad too noticeable in alcohol content.
