look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Split with rudzud and threelions,

Small fizzy barely head, crystal clear tan almost toasty brown.

Nose big aged candy malts, caramel, toffee like, done perfumey alcohol, little fig and candied apricot like fruity aromas. Little vanilla barrel, lots of maple, little ethanol.

Taste big sweet candy, toffee and caramel, syrupy thick like maple syrup, candy etc. Tons of vanilla barrel, maple vanilla cream barrel. Then booze, perfumey alcohol and tingly booze. Little nutty note, fruity candied stone fruit, etc. Sticky syrupy finish, lots of alcohol, perfumey alcohol, sweet syrupy candy, etc.

Mouth is a bit heavier bod, syrupy, lots of hot booze, decent but lighter carb.

Overall ok, interesting nice beer but quite boozy.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear copper hue with a nice head that faded to leave light sudsy halo.

S - Aromas of caramel, alcohol, vanilla, barrel, toffee. Loads of booze.

T - Taste is barrel galore, vanilla, bourbon, booze, caramel, toffee, quite boozy.The beer heeled better with more sips.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a sipper for sure and quite boozy.

O - Overall this beer was incredibly boozy but tasty. Will age nicely.

Clear burnt orange/coppery colour with a short beige cap. Some soapy bubbles stuck around and the head left a few spots of lacing on the glass as it receded. Sweet, toffee aroma with vanilla and oak, a bit boozy but nicely balanced. Nice flavour too. Mild up front with notes of sweet malts and a hint of bitterness, then --- oak and vanilla and booze, oh my! Big finish with lingering bitterness and toffee/caramel sweetness, along with woody astringency and alcohol warmth. Heavy, almost sticky, body with low carbonation. This is a big beer, perfect for sipping. I may lay a couple of these away for the winter months.
