Tap. Pours a muted clear red to brown with barely any khaki head. Aroma is bourbon forward for sure with mild sweetness. Taste is whiskey with a trace amount of flat amber beer and some water. Hot is an understatement. Alcohol through and through. Not really my thing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper in color with a thin khaki head. Caramel and bourbon up front on the nose. Hints of maple, vanilla, and dark fruit followed by intense alcohol, charred wood, and green apple. The beer tastes like watered down whiskey. Charred wood, heavy green apple, and lots of alcohol. Mild caramel, fruit, and vanilla notes. Kind of unpleasant, actually.
