look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A-a bright orange caramel color with a thin layer of khaki head

S-bready caramel, bit of earthy hops

T-caramel body with a light bit of hops, not the most exciting of tastes

M-medium body, carbonation is a bit on the light side

Overall it's not a bad beer by any means, just a bit one dimensional, still easy to drink

9/1....pours shiny copper, small foam layer. Mostly clear. Woodsy, oaky nose. Slight whisky note. Taste is a mixed up blend of malt, oak, whisky, vanilla. Smooth, creamy. Slight medicinal boozy flavor. Interesting for sure, but not all there. Points for creativity.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date 01/08/2015 printed on the back label. A new seasonal to me from Two Brothers brewing Company.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a coppery orange colored body with about a finger of khaki head that fades to a ring. Semi-transparent with some light fine sedimentation visible. Leaves behind some thin spotty lacing. Looks alright. 3.5

S - The smell is lightly sweet, caramel / toffee malts, some earthiness / woodsiness, but it doesn't smell barrel aged or foudre aged or whatever. Lightly boozy & phenolic. 3

T - Taste is the same - caramel malt, toffee malt, vague notions of dark fruit, notes of oak & wood.Some appley sort of flavor present as well. Fairly simple in it's approach, a little bit more alcohol content than I'm used to for the style. 3.5

M - The feel is crisp & clean. Malty finish. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation. 3

Overall, an okay representation of the style; very simple and average though, I would say. Not something I am likely to pick up again.
