bottle @ Fifty West / Cincinnati OH --- Hazy brown color with a head cover and light splashes of lace. Taste is big caramel malt and toffee and vanilla that builds to a strong alcoholic finish that I think has a little bourbon (or is that licorice?) in it. So big that sipping seems to be the only way, but what a nice brew in hand with the guys on the porch on a rainy night. Really good. JStax (6999) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
