  • Pours clear with almost no, tan foam on top of the liquid. Retention is minimal as there was almost no foam to begin with, while lacing was thick but retreated back to its level.

    Aroma is sweet toffee with earth and peat. The peat is nice in that it isn't over powering. Minor notes of vanilla and oak.

    Taste is a repeat of the aroma. Toffee is a key note with the peat showing up but once again seemingly perfect amount. Notes of vanilla and oak are minor as well as any bourbon, which I really couldn't find.

    Not as big of a body as you might expect: medium with a mild carbonation but good for the beer.

    Is this beer drinkable? Usually I only have about 2 - 3 sips before commenting on the taste, I had 3/4 of this beer gone before I even got to writing about the taste. Easy drinking is an understatement. Darn tasty. Enjoy!
