Pours dark copper with an inch of head and slight lacing.Has an odd smell to me but is floral and maybe dandelion.Taste off the bat id hoppy with a light bite.This does leave an aftertaste in the mouth.Not terrible but nothing really special.I expected a bit more but bought this in a mix 12 pack of their others also.Average rating for an average ale.

Nice nose on this one. Quite sweet, with a good amount of caramel coming out....perhaps a hint of that vanilla from the barrels. Good stuff.

The taste has an initial hop bite to it, giving way to a sweet chorus of caramel malts intermingling with just a hint of oak and biscuit and just a little vanilla as well too on the finish. It's all perceptible, and makes for a pretty interesting and well rounded EPA.
