2011 Vintage

Golden orange. Sweet caramel, bourbon with fruits. Pretty hot still.

Really tasty for how many years it has on it. I'm really glad I have 2 more.

Not your typical beer, but has a very complex taste and is highly carbonated. Hints of wine and oak, especially in aromas.

Hits on a ton of notes. Hints of cider, watered down bourbon, an oaky Chardonnay, but best of all it still maintains a strong ale backbone. I may not be the best to review this beer as I do not often branch out from IPAs, but I am happy I tried this one.
