clear light brown, small smooh offwihte head.
sweet sugary malty aroma, like a barley wine, hops seem a bit tired. overall nice aroma.
flavor is flowery hoppy, surprisingly fresh, very sweet malty, more hops bitterness than a baley wine, but more sweet malts than an IIPA. nice in its own way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is surprisingly not too shabby. Pours fairly clear amber with a nice orange-hued frothy head. Nose is subtle, with slight caramel notes and slightly sweet bourbon vanilla notes around the edges. Flavors are simple yet relaxing with a lot of the vanilla coming through from the bourbon, some nice background sweetness from the malt, crisp enough not to be too flabby...nicely thick and full bodied, yet not syrupy or overly sweet. A double amber ale aged in bourbon barrels, kinda worked out sort of well.

Draft at Brass Tap. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas include caramel malt, oak, vanilla and alcohol. Similar flavors with the alcohol fairly noticeable, but one would expect that at 9.4%. Overall pretty nice.
