3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Liz. Pours clear orange amber with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is mostly bourbon/vanilla with a hint of oak. Med body. It’s rather sweet, with hints of treacle. The oak is identifiable, and the bourbon/vanilla is clearly present. Yet it is not a strongly flavored ale. Heat is marginally detectable. Finishes on the non-dry side. It has a caramel sugar candy aspect. But the oak offsets that. Really interesting and pretty tasty.

Draft. Tried the other two brews from this maker to compare to this at the end. I like bourbon and barrel aged brews that are mostly stouts. This clearly is a different taste due to the fact that they used their ale as the base and the medium fizzy body and texture. Very interesting and good.

A beautiful orange cognac ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light peanuty malt, with bourbon infused butter pecans, interesting. In mouth, a smooth sweet buttered up nuts, like a liqueur, but a bit thin and simple. On tap at Meadhall, Oct. 10 2011.
