Poured from a 22oz bottle (#81 of 240) into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bourbon, butterscotch, vanilla, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out very sweet with flavors of vanilla, butterscotch, bourbon, caramel and some fruit. Then a hearty malt character breadiness comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
