The beer generally tastes like sweet caramel and bright coffee grounds. There's a medium plus sweetness with sharp barrel character and alcohol on the back.

A decent brew, but the bright coffee character cuts a bit away from the experience.

Coffee, some bourbon, vanilla. Somehow don't mesh well here.
