3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thank you very much for this one Jason!
Pours a murky brown color with a fiery, rubin-red hint in it, while its head diminishes fast.
Has a boozy, sweet nose of caramel, molasse and a sharp alcohol bite among oaken earthiness.
Tastes of scorched caramel, earthy malts, accompanied by a gentle pleasant oakiness. A spicy, burning boozines gets calmed by sweet malts and hints of vanilla, while the wooden oak notes settle down on the back of the palate. Has a high, sparkling carbonation, which pushes malt sweetness on a detectable level during the finish, with warming, wooden alcoholic hints in the background.

even a year out this one was pretty hot, but overall an interesting variation on a brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Brownish pour with a small head. Very ashy, rustic nose. Roasted malts, forest fire. Some buggy wood and red fruits. Jammy raspberry and leaf pile. A bit of hot butterscotch and vanilla-coated pear. Woody. Medium body, soft carbonation. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma has a lot of vanilla and bourbon, lots of caramel, some light roastiness and is generally rich and aromatic all around. It is a touch tame on alcohol character for as big as it is.
The flavor is roasty with lots of rich caramel and bourbon notes. It’s very sweet, booze, bourbon, and vanilla forward all the way... but enjoyably so.
Just a really fun example of a bourbon treatment.
