On tap at Strong Ale.

A: Very dark brown with a reddish tinge near the edges. Beige head crowns the liquid.

S: Maple, toffee, bready malt, and brown sugar with some oak. Notes of vanilla and bourbon waft from the glass. Earthy notes are evident.

T: Dark toffee blends with brown sugar and earth. Lower moderate bitterness with lots of oak and a dash of vanilla. There's a little maple and bourbon as well. At least I think it's bourbon. A little alcohol in the finish.

M: Full body with upper medium carbonation. Sticky and chewy mouthfeel.
