3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Haymarket in a 5 oz taster. Intensely cloyingly sweet. Like a thin bodied bourbony port wine. Can taste the alcohol but isn’t too boozy just because it’s so damned sweet. Not bad but geez, super one note.

Draft to taster at FoBAB from notes. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have big sweet malts, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, cherry notes, oak, boozy, fits nicely with the rest of this event.

Well barely wines are normally pretty great but this is an interesting one.I can’t tell if it’s really sweet or really sour. Like a sweet and sour sauce maybe. I don’t know...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 5/28/14
Aroma: The nose is sweet and a little boozy, with bourbon, vanilla, and caramel mostly
Appearance: The pour is amber in color with an off-white-to-beige colored head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same component-wise, it leans heavily toward the sweet side
Palate: The body leans toward the full side, some stickiness, and some heat
Sweet stuff, and pretty tasty stuff as well. This one was another nice offering that I got to try on my trip to Haymarket.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy orange-yellow color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, oak and resiny hops. The finish is subtle booze and piney hops. Pretty good overall.
