Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has bourbon but it’s well integrated with the sweet malt and floral notes. Taste starts with malt sweetness, bourbon and continues with floral notes. Quite good but a bit boozy for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours golden-orange with a moderate off white head. The clarity is a bit hazy but clears up quite a bit as it warms. It has strong malt aromas with orange, caramel, wheat, and low aromas of oak and bourbon. It has a rich malt, sweet flavor. It is highlighted by caramel, honey, orange, oak, bourbon, and alcohol. The overall balance is towards the malt. It has a heavy body, not quite chewy, with a moderately high bitterness. It is fairly smooth in spite of the high alcohol content There is also a fair amount of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a malty rich balance beer with a complex blend of fruits that packs a solid alcohol punch, but is fairly smooth.
