On tap at Vickery Park in Plano. Deep amber with medium head served in a tulip. Tastes more like a barrel aged quad. Sweet but not cloying. Mild Tastes of figs and raisins. Very tasty. Strong alcohol on the nose but taste Hides the 10% ABV well. Would have again.

pretty one-dimensional - bourbon..but the barrel aging was done properly.

Dark muddy red caramel body. Finger of off-white head.

Vanilla, bourbon, coconut, caramel and dark fruits from the scotch ale. A little sugary sweet.

Fairly sweet with some heat. Cherry and plum fruitiness, vanilla, bourbon. Smooth and medium bodied. Super delicious.

After the tour time beers I was skeptical of Community busting out a contemporary beer nerd type of beer but this satisfied all my urges.

A: dark copper brown on the pour with little head
S: toast with a little bit of oak and a tad bit of coffee
T: some toffee and brown sugar at front but falls weak on BE like a normal amber ale
M: surprisingly medium light
O: unfortunately this beer had me excited and fell short. I wish they could've kept the flavor consistent through even at the cost of mouthfeel. Interesting creation that turned out good but expected more after their last few releases that I love
