A: This one pours a dark amber, perhaps copper, color with a minimal off-white head.
S: Incredibly sweet and fruity. I don’t get a ton of the barrel/spirit character out of this one, but it’s good. Apples, pears, and golden raisins all seem to be there as well as a bit of honey and toffee.
T: Sweet caramel and brown sugar with a fairly strong alcohol character. Touches of vanilla and charred barrel, too. Nice and fruity with some apples (and apple juice) and golden raisins, mild spices and peat, too.
M: The body is medium with the carbonation being on the low end of medium.
D: Much too heavy on the fruit and apple juice qualities. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2011
