12 oz bottle from OTM. Appearance is a clear amber hue with a small white head. Sweet pineapple with a caramel kiss is the main aroma and flavor. Some apple and oak follow. Nice whiskey flavors that have a pepper note build. Great flavors tasty beer. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Orange pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee and grain. The flavor has some strong brown sugar and toffee notes as well as some oak, alcohol and spice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Aroma of hoppy pine, brown sugar, and candied carrots. Pours hazy orange with slight film. Taste is hoppy with pine, candied yams, and bourbon. Solid. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber, brown color with an off white head. Vanilla, some wood, caramel, dark fruits, and whiskey. A little sweet, but not cloying with some alcohol in the finish. Chadquest (37) - Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Body is an Amber sunburst with a thin off white ring around the upper edge of the spot where the beer meets the glass.
I like the aroma on this quite a bit, caramel sweetness with some whiskey whispers.
Caramel rolled in brown sugar, whiskey and oak are prominent (<3), not as deep and rich as the aroma indicated but just as sweet and alcoholic, the strong alcohol is nice just needs a bit more richness.
Mouthfeel is granular medium-dense.
I liked this beer, if you like alcoholic barleywines you should go buy some.
