(bottle). A nice surprise from Todd to wind down the summer. Aroma and flavors similar to original but dialed down a bit for the summer season and mellowed by oak aging The mIld but rich and sweet malts make this one tough to session over the long-haul.

Bottle pour into tulip. Big, fine, persistent head. Aroma: vanilla and whiskey. Taste: candied fruit, vanilla; sweet oak on the aftertaste. Very interesting, but I am glad I didn’t buy a six-pack.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours medium slightly deep medium amber with more of the orange hues coming through with a good frothy head. Aroamas of banana candy, light rum, hint of whiskey, caramel, touch of vanilla, and slight toffee. Flavors of light whiskey, light banana(candied)-like ester, light toffee, light caramel, and light dry hops. Lightly sweet, complex, different in a good way than expected(thought it would be more of a mostly whiskey flavors), clean finish, and a light bitterness. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. The whiskey notes are nicely mellow and come out well in the mix of other flavors and aromas.

A British beer in a clear bottle...oh dear...With expectations lowered, I’ll give it a shot. Smells Caramel and oak and a little skunky. Flavor is Oatmeal cookie and oak and a dryish finish. Actually not bad, though it possibly benefits from lowered expectations...
