3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, fizzy, lightly tanned head. Decent retention. The aroma furnishes a boatload of caramelized brown sugar alongside lesser notes of bourbon, oak, rye whiskey and spicy grains. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The sweet flavor offers caramel and rye whiskey tempered by modest bitterness. Rich, buttery toffee finish. Thanks to growler for sharing this whiskey-loaded, malty beer!

Bottle shared by Sean at the 2010 Summer Solstice. Poured a cloudy amber brown with an off-white head that dissipated quickly to the edge. Aroma had notes of sweet bread, caramel and rye. Flavor was similar with the rye being more of an undertone and caramel being to more present note.
