On tap at the SD Taproom 9th anniversary on 02/27/16.

Pours translucent brown with a thin khaki head. Faint nut aroma. Some nut, honey and vanilla flavor. Not much barrel presence here. Everything tastes diluted and watered down.

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep brown. Nice tan head. Chunky collar and a wispy surface.

Smell - Deep caramel malts. A little nutty. No barrel, except for some vanilla.

Taste - Follows the smell, but the nuttiness is stronger. Deep caramel, almost chocolatey. Vanilla, but again, no other barrel notes.

Mouthfeel - Bitter finish, but not a lot of hops. Well carbonated. Medium body.

Overall - It's a good nut brown, but I get no barrel.
