Pours a bright and clear copper color crowned with a thin lacy white head. The aroma is light and malty with subtle vinous qualities. The beginning of the taste is mild, grainy, sweet, and well balanced. The body is light with moderately low carbonation and flows fast into the finish which continues the maltyness and gives a light kiss of warming alcohol at the end.

Served in a snifter at Goose Island-Clybourn 6/18/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Served the color of dark roast, french press coffee. Tiny off- white head that quickly turns into a tiny off-white ring. No skim.

S: Huge aromas of bourbon and vanilla along side the lesser smells of caramel apple and toasted malt. Like smelling a dessert of Bourbon glazed caramel apple bread pudding.

T: See above! Sweet toffee, Bourbon, caramel, vanilla, raisins, coconut, and toasted malt all play equally important roles.

M: Sweet, slick, and very oily. Sticks to every inch of the inside of the mouth.

D: Almost no trace of alcohol and the incredibly appealing smells and tastes going on here make this beer criminally drinkable. What an awesome beer!
