Hazy muddy brick red with a minimal beige film and a creamy ring.

Smell is caramel apple, cinnamon and toffee.

Taste is caramel, hot thin bourbon, crumpets, green apple and a dry grape must.

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml waxed and capped bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is chestnut, logan, caramel, brown sugar, molasses and booze. There's a slight sap bitterness also. Great complexity and deep flavor. Beer opens caramel, brown sugar and molasses. Syrupy. There's some sap and maple also. Nutty. Deep, rich with a nice booziness. This is very very good. Body is full with low carbonation. Smooth on the palate and goes down rich and warm.

This is one very impressive beer. I wish I had a bottle or two to age so I could revisit this in a year or 3.
