look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A- Pours with little head, and whatever head there was it disappears almost instantly, has the color and appearance of coca cola, maybe just a hint lighter
S- Smells like cola, very sweet malt going on, almost a coffee butterscotch smell is in the background. Not much hops,maybe just a hint of herbs, they are right a little odd for the top three Hop producing brewers in San Diego.
T- Big toffee flavor, a bourbon oak taste is there, Lots of caramel. A very syrupy candy flavor, very sweet. Bit of coffee is going on, also there is a buttery warm flavor that sicks on my tongue after i'm done sipping. I expected a big alcohol content, but I was very surprised to see almost 9% they hide it very well and it gives just a bit of warmth. Oh btw no hops
M- Good syrup, buttery and warm.
O- I really like this beer, there are some trips some tangents I don't like I think it could def be smoothed out if they oaked age this beer for a year, I am planning on buying more and age it for a few months. Good job and good beer.
