Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

Ferris (6562) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle - Vinous, oak and nice mellow hops. Dark but clear mahogany with a rich beige head. Oak, bourbon, hoppy notes and a light cany booze. Nice and woody, the hops give it a distinct American flavor.
