Beautiful orange color. Skunky aroma in the bottle. Weak head. Medium, creamy body with candy aroma and a sweet (but not malty) oak flavor. Sharp finish. Overall, a nice barrel aged brew that I would have again, but probably not more than 1 in an evening.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

660ml bottle into nonic pint

a: a light shade of copper with two-ish fingers of head

s: skunk, oak, vanilla, butterscotch/caramel, malt

t: skunk and mild apple notes in the front but mostly oak, caramel, and hints of vanilla

m: probably the biggest surprise here. medium-plus mouthfeel and very creamy. very little carbonation

o: whisky in beer form. aside from any skunk characteristics (this is a clear bottle so it's vulnerable to this), it's an interesting beer
