Thick amber and brown, solid foam. High octane whiskey, some tobacco, malt. Amazing vanilla, some crusty malt. Exceptional beer.

01/09/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Thanks to Dave. This is one of the most phenomenal brews I've ever tasted. The immediate nose is buttered popcorn. Once done, you taste a browned butter flavor that borders butterscotch without the sweetness . So not what I was expecting...way...way better. If an outside the IPA thing is what you're looking for...look no further.
