Growler from the GBX poured in to a stemless wine glass

Dark brown with reddish hues near the edges. Very slight collar of head with some spotty bubble cover on the surface.

I smell the bourbon with hints of caramel and molasses. The caramel sticks out the most on second smell.

The sweetness I smelled comes through in the taste as well. The bourbon flavor is not strong but very noticeable. This is a great beer. It finishes with a slight taste of hops and the aftertaste is the molasses and bourbon.

Lightly carbonated creamy mouth.

I really like this beer and could drink several more. The flavor profile is awesome, a truly tasty brew.

Serving type: growler
