Cloudy brown beer, decent tan head. Toffee cream nose. Light dry palate. Toffee cream. Subtle sour and spice. Light whisky. Nice woody tones with a trace of vanilla and aniseed. Very light on it it’s toes for an 11.0% beer.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Great aroma of yeast, spice, and caramel. Excellent cloudy orange pour with a thin vanilla top. Tastes like u scraped ur arm on a dirty stick then put a band-aid on ur arm then licked the band-aid. Good carbonation. If ur into kinda thing, then I would highly recommend this brew.

Muddy read medium creamy head; tobacco and boozy and red wine aromas; stout like in the nose after a swallow... Much like a stout in finish with a tart edge. Very complex but I won't come back to it again with its price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
