Nice nose on this one. Quite sweet, with a good amount of caramel coming out....perhaps a hint of that vanilla from the barrels. Good stuff.

The taste has an initial hop bite to it, giving way to a sweet chorus of caramel malts intermingling with just a hint of oak and biscuit and just a little vanilla as well too on the finish. It's all perceptible, and makes for a pretty interesting and well rounded EPA.
