Pours a hazy Amber brown with a white head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Taste is deeply malty up front that fades into a smokey middle. Then it takes a turn where both a sour and sweet vanilla combination takes you into the finish. Dryness of smokey but in lingers well after the taste.

Bottle from WF PM. Pours hazy copper with loud, off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, molasses, oaky bourbon. Tastes rich, very dense on the tongue, with heavy oak and bourbon flavor, caramel, molasses, hops, mild smoky flavor. This is the best DuClaw beer I have had, and I’ll be buying a case to cellar.

Willrunforbeer reached into his cellar and pulls out a 2/14/2014 bottle, what a guy!! Sort of a Dirty muddy water Amber color, head died right after the pour. Aroma is fruity with English malts, oak and light bourbon. Chalumeaux (1533) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Very nicely aged here... I guess some people still drink these fresh?? The caramel, toffee and bourbon just works. The booze has completely mellowed out. Mouthfeel is low carbonation with a light boozy finish. More ? Yes please!!

Poured from bottle.
Aroma of bourbon and some malt.
Appearance is solid brown with tan head.
Tasting vanilla, alcohol, wood, some smokiness, brown sugar, grassy and citrusy hops, caramel, pepper.
Palate is full and rich, although boozy.
Overall, a great brew. Wish I’d had this on a colder day by the fire.
