Growler from the brewery served in a pint glass
Review from notes:

A - Hazy light brown with big bubbled head. Low retention with minimal lacing.

S - Sweet woody malts, sugary fruit, apples, caramel, muddled whiskey aroma.

T - Starts off with sweet caramel malts, slightly toasted, very fruity, mainly apples, woody tannins, there's earthy/spicy bitterness but it's hard to detect the source. There's notes of mild earthy hops underneath the rounded nutty malts. Finishes semi-dry with notes of fruit and toasted wood.

M - Medium weight with active carbonation that mellows out as it sits. Woody tannins are left on the aftertaste.

Interesting brew. The malts and fruit combined with the wood create a complex mix of flavors that seem uncommon.

Wow...this is a good beer. Bro-in-law brought it to the 4th of July soiree. The beer poured a amberish-brown with thin slightly offwhite head that is not lacing. The smell has hints of whiskey/bourbon. The taste is a beautiful balanced beer with a not so overpowering flare of whiskey. The mouthfeel is medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer.
