hopscotch (9552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The nose is a luxuriant swirl of bourbon, brown sugar, toffee and mocha. Full-bodied and chewy with soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes tons of bourbon intermingled with sweet caramel and brown sugar. The finish is all about the bourbon. I do love bourbon. Thanks goes out to darkguardian for sharing this world class rarity!
