Enjoyed on tap in a snifter at the brewpub in chitown.

Brown and opaque, like a dark, sour cherry. Half finger of filmy light tan head.

Bourbon, vanilla, maple, mint, toffee, chocolate.

Sweet. Tons of toffee, dark cherry, acidic wood, sugary at the finish. Vanilla ice cream and cherry sauce with toffee candies. Oak and whiskey at the finish.

Fairly tongue numbing, big alcohol. High pinching carbonation, viscous medium-full body. Warming.

Good to combat the winter cold.
