NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Draft at FoBAB9. Pours a deep copper-brown with an offwhite head that goes away. Nose is light vanilla and maple, some sweet malt components and oak. Pretty generic, but not bad. On tasting, same issue. Mildly generic with a rounded malt profile, some residual sweetness. Clean fermentation and robust oak character. I could take it or leave it.
