Notes/Commercial Description:
Bourbon Carrot Cake is an experimental dessert ale made with carrots, marshmallow, vanilla, maple syrup, orange zest, walnuts, pecans and spices and then aged in bourbon barrels. The aroma is enticing, emitting fragrances that literally recreate a slice of carrot cake that has been soaked in bourbon, right down to the cream cheese frosting. Incredibly complex, yet surprisingly balanced, the flavor of each specialty ingredient seems to take its turn. Pleasant flavors of spice and cream resonate on the pallet causing an uncontrollable craving to taste more.

big thanks to JerryM1984 for this one !

poured cold from the howler about a week and a half after fill at the brewery. poured to a three floyd's teku semi-opaque and mahogany brown with a full finger, short lasting tan head leaving a ring around the surface.

aroma of cinnamon and spice with a hint of bourbon in the way back.

big bodied, just this side of syrupy (in a good way), medium carbonation, sweet to the tongue.

carrot cake, precisely as advertised ! big bourbon and vanilla, oak, cinnamon, buttery cream cheese icing, and brown sugar.

nice !
