look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a medium amber with a tight head. Gentle aromas of oak and malt.

Medium bodied and carbonation is spot on.

The note of vanilla and wood harkens the flavor of bourbon without being a bourbon aged ale. Extremely good use of malts, gentle toast flavors enveloped by luscious vanilla that finishes off with a hint of citrus and earth. Sweet but not cloying. Reminds me a bit of Anderson Valley's line of ales.

Smooth and slightly on the creamy side, this is one delicious session ale.

First had: on nitro at Cigar City, Tampa, FL

Burnt orange color, deep but translucent, with a small, dense, beige head that lasted well and left some streaks of lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma, caramel, toffee, vanilla, light indistinct fruit. Really liked this one a lot. Taste reflected the nose, pretty sweet, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, a good dose of vanilla, which lent a flavor and smoothness reminiscent of a big, bourbon-aged beer, only without any trace of bourbon. Light notes of citrus zest and leafy hops, but the beer was mostly dominated by malt/vanilla sweetness. Medium body, smooth, creamy, tantalizing. Not for everyone perhaps, but definitely left me wanting more.

Brewed on oak with vanilla.

Arrives a deep reddish-brown with a creamy, light tan, well retained head perched atop.
Smell is a well blended mix of malt, vanilla and oak with some light fruit in the back.
Taste is sweet, malt, vanilla and oak exceedingly well balanced.
Body is thinner than expected, just medium with a light effervescence to go with it. Smooth and very drinkable, even sessionable.
