Bald Eagle Brown

12 oz single, Total Wine, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Dark amber body with disappointing lace and head. Colour is strong, but the rest of the appearance lacks much presence.
Nose seems to be the strongest suit for the beer and has a touch of boubon or liquor. I have ABSOLUTELY no idea where that is coming from but the source seems to be an exaggerated malt profile. Although the liquor is an odd thing to be picking up, I am glad to have a large malt note in a style that SHOULD be exhibiting such traits.
Unfortunately the tastes drop off a little too quickly for my liking. It has some sweetness and nutty character but the beer leaves me disatisfied in general and lacks much presence in terms of the mouthfeel. A touch weak.
Perhaps a chance missed, but ultimately not much more than slightly above average.
