750mL poured into large tulip
Pours a hazed straw golden color with a one-finger high white head resting on top. Slowly fades into a thick layer of retention with some patches of lacing on the glass.
Assorted notes of caramel, honey and vanilla in the nose. Oak and faint bourbon with some toasted bread malts and syrupy sweetness. Decent alcohol warmth.
Layers of sweet flavor with honey and caramel up front. Syrupy malts with vanilla hints and oaked bourbon. Hints of light fruit with pear and apple peek through momentarily along with a Belgian tone. Burly malt backbone with grain, toasted bread and a hint of spice. Finishes sweet and boozy.
Full body, slightly higher carbonation, chewy, sticky and lingering on the tongue. This beer definitely excels when it rises toward room temperature, but it doesn't quite reach the benchmark that many of the other barrel-aged Bruery beers have set.
