Well barely wines are normally pretty great but this is an interesting one.I can’t tell if it’s really sweet or really sour. Like a sweet and sour sauce maybe. I don’t know...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 5/28/14
Aroma: The nose is sweet and a little boozy, with bourbon, vanilla, and caramel mostly
Appearance: The pour is amber in color with an off-white-to-beige colored head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same component-wise, it leans heavily toward the sweet side
Palate: The body leans toward the full side, some stickiness, and some heat
Sweet stuff, and pretty tasty stuff as well. This one was another nice offering that I got to try on my trip to Haymarket.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy orange-yellow color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, oak and resiny hops. The finish is subtle booze and piney hops. Pretty good overall.
