A: This one pours a dark amber, perhaps copper, color with a minimal off-white head.
S: Incredibly sweet and fruity. I don’t get a ton of the barrel/spirit character out of this one, but it’s good. Apples, pears, and golden raisins all seem to be there as well as a bit of honey and toffee.
T: Sweet caramel and brown sugar with a fairly strong alcohol character. Touches of vanilla and charred barrel, too. Nice and fruity with some apples (and apple juice) and golden raisins, mild spices and peat, too.
M: The body is medium with the carbonation being on the low end of medium.
D: Much too heavy on the fruit and apple juice qualities.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012… Pours clear, deep and dark with mahogany highlights and a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a luxuriant swirl of Jack Daniels, toasted malts, toffee, caramel and straight-up sourmash distiller’s beer. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is caramely and malty; minerally and gently acidic. Tangy sourmash finish with plenty of warming whiskey and a gentle kiss of buttery toffee. Big-time kudos to landhoney and newcigarz for making this meeting possible!
