Pours dark brown, a bit of foam. Aroma is quite interesting, green apple, smooth and a bit of caramel. Taste is multi-layered. Has some subtle caramel malt, clean, nice cocoa beans and still some green apple. Hops also there shining through especially from the end. Superbly balanced, well made.

Mahogany color, with thin head.. Lots of oak vanilla, chocolate, Bon bons, cherries, oranges. Very malty. Slightly boozy. Sweet nose. Bourbon is fairly subdued and well integrated. Very malty. One of the maltier beers I’ve had from the U.S. could be from Scotland. The mouth is a bit malty and a bit weaker than I would think. Kinda strange, but lovely.

4oz pour at the brewery. Pours a murky, rootbeer brown with zero head. Looks dangerous. Nose is mostly booze, vanilla, oak, some nail polish. Flavors are the same, the base beer is gone, heavy booze, some vanilla, some coconut. Sticky finish. Lots of sugar and booze.

Tap. Pours clear chestnut with a small tan head and no lacing. Aroma is more or less all whiskey. Whiskey also dominates the flavor with some spruce, caramel malt and a ton of green apple all over the place. A bit of tartness, lightly sweet. Light to medium body, light warming finish.
