Olde Hickory "Daniel Boone"
Olde Hickory Brewery - Hickory, North Carolina USA
Imperial Brown Ale (ABV 8.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]


Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate:3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a murky medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing down to a thin puddled film and medium collar which produced only fair streaky lacing.

It had an aroma that was of toasted sweet dark bread malts and an earthy leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, bourbon and a slight nutty/woody scent.

As for the taste it was sweet and malty with a hint of caramel and a touch of chocolate pretty much throughout, with the finish having a strong vanilla presence and a slightly nutty alcohol ending. The flavor lingered for an average duration proceeding the swallow with a boozy, sweet, nutty, cask taste settling nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and a bit dry in texture with a soft mild carbonation.

Overall this brew screams booze and vanilla towards the end, with the middle having a light chocolate-caramel sweetness and a nice dark roastiness...
