On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is peaty and earthy with a strong bourbon caramel sweetness. It appearamce is a rich, oily, woody brown with a tan, dense soap head that had moderate retention and a dense, droopy lace. The taste is highly sweet with just a light bitter back note. The texture is that of a thin syrup accompanied by a light, but dense foam carbonation. The full body has an earthiness to it, but is primarily caramel with a toasty / smokey note. The finish is nutty leading to an aftertaste that keeps the nuts, but adds a smokey, and slightly ashy note with sticky maple. Lubiere (14192) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015

On tap @ Le Saint Bock. Brownish/amber pour with a khaki head. The smell is intensely sugary and sweet. A lot of fruity jam, some chocolate, and plenty of caramel. A touch of booze and maybe some green apple? Definitely some harsh solvent, booze, and green apple on the tongue. Kind of rough. A lot of goopy caramel sweetness to go with it. Not my cup of tea. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
