22 ounce bottle into a snifter.

A ruby colored pour, a little cloudy, with no head and hardly any lacing. Smells of malt, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, light vanilla, maybe some less discernible spices. Taste is malt, cinnamon, some ginger, cloves, less vanilla than the nose, some bourbon, a hint of oak. Slight alcohol. Smooth, good level of carbonation, good body.

Got this as a gift, had it three days later, and was really surprised how much I liked it. For Hoppin' Frog, the influence of the bourbon barrels is almost nil, but this is definitely worth a try. Might have to get another one and let it sit a while.
