Bottle; Pour is fairly clear dark golden with an over carbed white head in this glass. It retains well; sticky lacing is present. The nose is vanilla, oak treatment, tropical fruit, and bourbon. Its stick, sweet, earthy ; mango and coconut, vanilla, and some mild oaked notes ; some caramel and bourbon ; it has a fairly nice finish, masking most of the booze ; this is an interesting one - its a bit overwhelming but interesting for sure.

Bottle thanks to someone who escapes me at the moment, but thanks! Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of of sweet grains with hints of light fruit and underlying vanilla and bourbon. Flavor has a good amount of sweet grains with a backing bourbon note and a hint of sweet light fruit. Alcohol note is a bit heavy in the finish.

Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Freds ever the guy! Pours dishwater gold with a creamy bubbly white head. Smells like graveyard more than barnyard! Kinda phenolic. Underlying sour. Not quite sweatsox. Theres a lot of different things in the aroma. Med + body. Flavor is barnyard, then phenolic, with some citrus. And theres always this underlying caramel sweetness. Then some oak and astringency. Vanilla. Its a struggle, but I think I get coconut. This is dry and very, very towards barnyard. The alcohol sort of makes my head swim, but its hardly detectable otherwise - just blends into the flavors. Wow.
