hazy amber pour, thin cream head reduces to oily cap. Nose is light maple, honey, light cherry. Flavor is burnt sugar front, bit of chocolate and syrup mid, sugar returns in the finish, really gritty, off-putting sweetness.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.
The beer appears chestnut brown with a thin beige cap. The aroma brings a healthy dose of bourbon, malt, vanilla, oak. Very nice. The flavor is quite tasty. Lots of bourbon. Lightly sweet, with a touch of spice. Vanilla and oak throughout. Medium bodied with low carbonation and alcohol content well hidden. Good stuff.
