A: Pours a slightly hazy honey color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.
A: Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, some vanilla a nd toffee, with bit of spice and a trace of oak and whiskey in the background.
T: Taste is similar to the aroma with some caramel sweetness, toffee, vanila with a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.
F: Moderate body, crisp and smooth with just a bit of a sticky sweetness.
O: Nice beer that goes down quite easy. The Barrel aging gives it a bit of a unique character.

peach colored pour with some head that leaves very quickly.
very sweet, vanilla and caramel (dulce de leche!) aroma.
taste is sweet also. taste is vanilla-y also, malty, some caramel. i like it a lot until i get the 'oak' from the barrels it was sitting in. i dont like beers (or at least lighter colored beers) that have sat in barrels. oak or otherwise.
overall, unlike my last beer which was not good smelling but nice tasting, this was AWESOME smelling but the taste is not so great. i mean, i love the taste, but the finish is makes me shudder as i taste the barrel. i still say leave the barrels to the bourbons. and the whiskeys. it doesnt belong in beer. at least not all beer... maybe others like it, but i do not.

3.58/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Serving Type - 500ml can poured into a nonic pint glass
Appearance - Beer pours a clear orange-golden colour. The initial two fingers of head appeared watery vanished vey quickly. Some (very) light traces of lacing are left behind.
Smell - A pleasant aroma. Very sweet smelling. Vanilla is dominant followed by caramel and sweet toffee. Also picking up some spices. There is an oak aroma from the aging process but I likley wouldn't have picked up on it if I hadn't been looking for it, but ist's really quite nice.
Taste - Vanilla taste right off the bat. Also a woody (oak) taste. Some light spiced towards the end. Caramel and toffee flavours feature predominantly. The vanilla taste also seems to linger. Bitterness is extremely low.
Mouthfeel - Far from heavy. If anything the beer is on the light side body-wise. Carbonation is low.
Overall - 3.5
Serving type: can
