The nose is fairly mild with some spice, vanilla, biscuit, caramel, dried fruit. It pours a brilliant deep reddish amber under a 2" finely bubbled foam cap from a bomber bottle. The 12 ounce bottles have slightly less head. Big biscuit flavors, fruit, vanilla, caramel, alcohol and a hint of fig. there is a very slight tannic astringency on the finish. The hops and alcohol flavors join together to temper the rich malt flavors. The body is big - just a shade under chewy. I prefer it out of the bomber bottles - the carbonation is softer. The 12 oz. bottles are crisper and have a little bit of a bite. The tap version is somewhere in between. Big and bold, yet fairly well balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice hazy copper/amber color to it. It has a nice thick tan head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet caramel, some toffee, light bready/toasty malts and faint herbal hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has caramel, toffee, some breadiness, toasty/buiscuity malts and light herbal hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours an amber mahogany color with a soapy head and fair lace. Aroma is full of caramel, soft vanilla and faint buttery toffee. In the taste, caramel, buttery toffee and a small vanilla from the oak. The body is the best part, perfectly medium with solid carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall, a pretty decent brew. Would have it again.
