Got this off tap at crunchys in east lansing. served in a snifter.

A: pours a fine clear ruby orange color with a short beige head that dissipates fast leaving a thin remanant that lasts the whole way. medium amounts of lacing too.

S: thick, wafty aroma. barley, yeast, malts, bourbon, caramel, brown sugars, hops, booze

T: woooo. strong flavor. wheat, barley, bourbon, yeast, caramel, woody, very bitter, hoppy, strong kick of booze.

M: rich full body with lower amounts of carbonation, a slow sipper fore sure. bitter, hoppy, booze after taste.

O: sheet. crazy strong. Crazy good.pricey but id recommend it.
