Apparently this one is great on draft. From the 22oz bottle it was not the same experience. Drain pour for all. Tasted like green peppers and smelled putrid like vomit. Infected? I dunno, but it was the worst beer i have had in some time

Poured from the bomber into a nonic pint glass. The beer is brown, amber and has light hues. There's a haze to the liquid and some robust carbonation. The head is a finger thick, creamy but dissipates quickly. 4

While pouring, the aroma reminds me of bourbon, like a jack and coke. From the glass, it does have a syrupy aroma and big vanilla notes. It's both a sweet and boozy smell. 3.75

The sweetness continues, but there's an astringent taste here that's a bit of a bummer. This competes with a maple-like flavor that does remind me of pancakes. Caramel and toffee are all over this brew. Vanilla is a big presence as well. As this warms, the booziness on the flavor subsides well.
3.8

While overly boozy initially, this settles to a sweet, almost syrupy and, potentially for some, cloying concoction. The sweetness could be toned down and I wish there was more hops to balance this. 3.6

This beer could be great but for the sweetness. 3.75
