On tap @ Fat Heads PDX. Dark amber colored beer with a thin ring of khaki foam. Starts off smelling great. Liquid graham crackers, basically. Pretty good bourbon and vanilla, some brown sugar, and dark fruits. Flavor, though, has a ton of green apple/acetaldehyde that just ruins all the good stuff. Still has the bourbon, graham cracker, subtle spice, and sweet caramel, at least. BuckeyeBoy (9218) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 22, 2015
