Draft at Top Hops Beer Shop, NYC. Pours pale amber and clear with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt and bourbon. Similar taste with some oak and vanilla. Flavor is a little weak and has an off-putting element I can’t identify. Finish is sweet with an alcoholic bite.

Pours a whiskey color from a bottle with a thin creamy white head. Aroma of sweet corn pudding, flavor sort of a cream soda with some medicinal bitterness. A bit weird but okay.

SlovakSniper (4702) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
Une bière ambrée, très effervescente, avec une tête mousseuse assez tenace. Le nez s’ouvre sur des parfums de caramel et sur quelques effluves de bourbon. Le goût montre un caramel rendu légèrement suret. Pas particulièrement bon. La bouche est très pétillante. Son corps mousse beaucoup. La finale se fait sur une drôle d’acidité enrobée de malts doux. Merci à Stoned99 pour le tick.

This beer is so much cooler in theory than it is in execution. I got excited when I saw it because I love Two Roads, I love sours, and I love beers that are aged in other alcoholic barrels, but this beer is one with two conflicting flavors that are in competition with each other. You don’t get the sour and you don’t get the bourbon because the two effectively cancel each other out.
