markwise (5187) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled at 2011 Cajun Cafe Fall Beer Fest (decided batch # based on the bottle pic). Pours a red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is sweet malts, candy sugar, light wood, and some fruit- plums maybe? Flavor is similar with the oak seemingly stomping on some of the quad notes. The sugar and fruit is a bit subdued in favor of the woody flavors. Light to medium in body with well-hidden alcohol.
