Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight earthy malt, hint of hop, and slight bourbon. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of bourbon, sweet malt, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of hop. Overall, weaker body than aroma, but still well blended.

A - no head at all. Light color bubbles. Muddy cola brown body. 3

S - chocolate and cigarettes. Sweetness and ashtray. 2.5

T - notes of cola. Bitter ( but not hoppy ) aftertaste. Like a jack and coke with beer mixed in 2.75

M - not bad. Smooth a touch watery and fizzy 3

O - an odd experiment. No strong desire to return. 3
