What a fantastic treat. Served on-tap at Capones last night in a small snifter glass.
Appearance: Served a light golden orange color with a small froth cap.
Smell: vanilla and oak with a sweet white grape give it a distinct wine like aroma. A touch of fruit, some peach and banana and an element of lemon, sit beside a distinct wine like alcohol.
Taste: The taste is similar to the nose. Yeasty fruity flavors and a woody notes of vanilla, coriander, orange and wine. I know this is Bourbon aged but I thought there was more vinous alcohol and vanilla oak than I typically associate with the charred wood flavor of bourbon. Still, I see that it is there.
Mouthfeel: A dry and spicy triple that is gloriously boozy.
Drinkability: It is hot and yet quite nice to drink. Still, I much preferred the Interlude for a sessionable beer. This is a decent sipper.
Hope this is helpful.
Serving type: on-tap
