Pours a hazy amber brown with a quarter inch foamy cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving thick lacing around the rim.
Toasted and fruity amber malt combines with light citrus hop notes, accompanied by a boozy note to form the aroma. Caramel, resin, and pine emerge late. Subtler than expected.
Flavor reveals more hop character. A fairly strong grapefruit note begins the lightly tart profile, leading into pretty sweet caramel and toasted, bready malt, finishing fairly bitter and resiny. Some of the amber malt fruitiness eventually comes through.
Body is moderate, slightly syrupy, with moderate carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Alcohol warmth is present, but not overpowering.
I expected a little more. Pretty hoppy. Not as boozy as I feared.
Serving type: on-tap

Amberish pour capped by a finger of persistent light tan foam that laces up. Smells of caramels, biscuits, light molasses, pale and sweet malts. Nice. Tastes of caramel, doughy, bourbon elements. Smooth and nice balance here from hop, so the sweetness isn't overwhelming at all. Complexity increases as it warms. Here is dark fruit. This is almost a barleywine. Alcohol announces it's presence, but it works well, it's warming in this package. Medium bodied medium carbonation. This one isn't meant to gulp down. Sip and enjoy the complexity that emerges.

Thick single finger head with excellent lacing and retention on a murky deep orange with an odd sea foam green hue body. Aroma is fairly boozy alerting you to the flavor with notes of apricot, molasses, brown sugar and wood. Flavor is initially fairly boozy but lightens up as enjoyed and as it warmed a bit with notes of apricot, pine, cherry, candied orange on an earthy and woody caramel malt base. A very nice memorable and complex beer.
