Off white bubbly head stayed on a hazy dark copper coloured, finely carbonated body.
Malt, caramel, over stewed fruit & grape aroma.
Medium to full bodied. Thick, cloying with minimal carbonation & a prickly finish.
Taste is much as the aroma with caramel, over stewed fruit, bitter hoppy citrus, spices & hints of cloves.
Very rich - a real sipper

Bottle at Len. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, grapefruit, wood. Pretty orange-amber color with a low head and hazy. Boozy bourbon up front, sweet caramel and vanilla evolves into a very dry finish. So easy to drink for the weight. Lovely.

Bottle, thanks Gregg! Deep orange pour, some beige foam. Sweet boozy nose, sticky and syrupy already from the beginning. Tatse has lots of bourbon booze, coconut and vanilla. Warming you up a bit - which is useful when you are tasting it outside at 4 degrees Celsius. Herbal and bitter lingering finish, heavy and rough but at the same time balanced with sweetness. Liking this a lot.
