Thanks to BigTuro for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, fruit, whiskey, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, fruit, and whiskey flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice smell, but there is an odd wood bitterness that lingers long after each sip.
