Pours brown with a small head.
Nose shows heavy American oak with big vanilla and creme brulee notes alongside some equally sweet-smelling golden syrup and brown sugar characters.
Similarly sweet flavours. Creme brulee, burnt caramel, woody oak, brown sugar, toasted coconut. Perhaps a bit too sweet.
Could use more carbonation to help with the sweetness.

Nice mahogany color with a thin head with short retention.
Interesting aroma with notes of coconut that are quite easy to capture, caramel malt, raisins, vanilla and mild pine.
Flavor non-sweet piñacolada, vanilla, rum and cola, mild lemon and pine, plums, lots of oak and raisins. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Very light body with low carbonation, so its alcohol of 7.2% abv is definitely felt.
Decent beer with good complexity, though it felt a bit unbalanced to me, its body could be a bit bolder to match up to its flavors.
