On tap at Yard House in Northridge, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, caramel, toffee, honey, coffee bean, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, coffee bean, vanilla, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a coffee presence that is noticeable but it is somewhat muted against the base beer and barrel aged qualities.

Serving type: on tap.
