look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

660ml bottle into nonic pint

a: a light shade of copper with two-ish fingers of head

s: skunk, oak, vanilla, butterscotch/caramel, malt

t: skunk and mild apple notes in the front but mostly oak, caramel, and hints of vanilla

m: probably the biggest surprise here. medium-plus mouthfeel and very creamy. very little carbonation

o: whisky in beer form. aside from any skunk characteristics (this is a clear bottle so it's vulnerable to this), it's an interesting beer

I really have a soft spot for this beer as one of the first beers ever that I really liked. The appearance is a dark orange, almost honey color with very little head. The smell has a little wood and a lot of sweet smells like vanilla. The taste is incredibly smooth with hints of toasted malt and a little bit of hops at the end for a refreshing finish. Definitely still love this one.
