Three tasting opportunities. On draft, out of the tank at the brewery, and bottled. Loses a lot in the translation to bottle, IMO. Draft and from the tank - outstanding and that is where I base the rating. Reddish/gold color, a little thick and heavy but good for a cool fall day. Malty sweetness, minimal bitterness, somewhat heavy on mouth feel. Definite toasted malt, grainy, caramel/toffee. Seemed to me it lost the caramel/toffee notes on bottling. Capital brews outside Madison, but ships tankers to Stephen’s Point for bottling, and the warehouse was really warm - thinkin’ that isn’t good. Out of the tank was by far the best taste draft was close, bottling definitely not as high quality in the flavor.
Review from notes.

I restrained myself as my neighbor knocked over the last one I had brought with me from WI. Neither a tear or neighbor dropped to my deck as much as both should have. The only plus is that my deck boards never smelled so good. Best beer ever! Perfect in everyway.

2012 release; poured into a goblet
A: Clear amber. Some lacing. An off-white half finger head that dissipates quickly.
S: Bready malts, grain, hay, barley.
T: Sweet, malty with molasses and bourbon heavily mixed in. Nutty. A bit of chocolate. Very smooth. Almost like a shot of Kentucky bourbon. Nice.
M: Medium with medium carbonation.
O: Looks like a year really set this one straight. A great sipper. The bourbon really makes this one a solid brew.
