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.

Serving type: nitro-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap
