This is part of Uinta's Crooked Line, and will certainly leave you a bit twisted should you consume the entire bottle. The problem is, this beer is so well balanced and easy to drink that you might do just that without even realizing. Dark mahogany in color with caramel and dried fruit aromas along with notes of floral hops, toasted malts and sweet wood laced with vanilla. It's surprisingly lively in the mouth with medium carbonation lifting the caramel malt and roasted, nutty flavors. The sweet oak and Bourbon spice really shine through on the finish, lingering endlessly. Superb.
