1.5. Brown colored ale. Unfortunately the nose is really lacking, only light hints of malt and wood. Lacking power. Flavor doesn't have a lot going on either, a touch of vanilla, caramel, toast, toffee, but it's really soft, sweet, simplistic, light. Nice enough effort. Well made, I just wish it had more power, more taste. I'm puzzled why Anchor didn't put any Foghorn in the blend. That seems like the beer to barrel.

On draft at Hops and Pie, I was pretty surprised to see this since I knew the bottles were very rare. No wonder given the fact they age it in their own whiskey barrels. Bright amber color, small head. Aroma is weird, sort of sweet, no whiskey, hints of wood. The flavor was sweet, had notes of cola and then dr. pepper, booze and then wet wood. Honestly based on the taste I assumed this was aged in first use oak or something because it tasted like it was barrel-aged but did not taste like any sort of spirits. Overall very interesting but a whole bottle would be quite cloying.

Served in a pint glass at Toronado.
Bartender said it was aged in Anchor Distillery's Old Potrero barrels which is some mighty fine whisky.
Tan or beige color with very little head.
Anchor malt shows through liberty like hop profile with a very well balanced whisky flavor.
I've always felt that Old Potrero has cinnamon and burnt sugar flavors and I found them here as well. This is dangerously drinkable at 8%. I hope its bottled.
