4.13/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Want to point out the head: khaki colored which rose to two fingers with a strong pour and has been taking awhile to settle. This is the first I've seen from this year's batch but the brewery is right around the cornor. Best by Nov18 13 date which I assume to mean a Mar. 18 bottle date. Only the slightest hint of cola colored highlights when held to the light. Nice oak nose, with vanilla, allspice and coffee hints. There's alot of lacing lingering on my selinsgrove tulip. It's thin for RIS, but it's smooth and drinkable. The flavor starts with oaky vanilla, a hint of bourbon, black licorace finishes with a roasty malt char. There's not the slightest bit of harshness from the bourbon but a hop bitterness which I expect would fade away.
