FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
From the February 2013 3R6P tasting. My favorite beer of the night!+++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was woody with sweet caramel, honey, bourbon and vague fruity hops. The flavor was bourbon, wood, coconut, pineapple, berries and vanilla. Wonderfully full of flavor and complex. Long wood, vanilla and pineapple finish. Moderately full bodied. Marvelous.

Bottle shared at Dadtoberfest. The aroma is nice: candi sugar, fruit, bread, bourbon. The appearance is red/brown, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, really nice. The bourbon is restrained, and adds just the right amount of flavor to the beer. The finish is sweet, pine needles. Medium/thick in body. Nicely done.
