The beer pours a gleaming copper in color. There is a short head of white foam. The aroma is toasted malt, oak, light vanilla, with a light whiskey-like note. The taste follows the aromas, lightly sweet malt, oak, vanilla and light whiskey. The beer drinks easy, tingling carbonation and smooth. There is a dry woody finish with a light to moderate bitterness. This is an easily drinkable beer that gives a light whiskey barrel effect.
