On tap at TH for -bal aged week. Served in a chalice with a light layer of beige head. Color is a dark mahogony hued copper brown.

Aroma: Deep notes of JD here. The whiskey comes out a lot in this one and I like it a lot, even though it reminds me a bit of bourbon. It also has a decent amount of oak showing. A strong malt backbone with no presence of hops. Caramel and toffee with a light amount of chocolate. The tiniest bit of peat shows.

Taste: A big whiskey blast up front. This barrels really add a big flavor here. I really thought this was jim beam -bal aged. It has a touch of vanilla and a decent amount of oak showing. Light peat with some dark fruits. A bit of raisins and plums. Caramel, toffee, and chocolate malt all show.

Mouthfeel: Warming, smooth, and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a bit of peat, but pretty clean.

Overall, I thought this was a pretty solid wee heavy. It had a lot of whiskey showing which I really liked. Pretty malty as well. Definitely something worth trying. (1,045 characters)

750ml waxed bottle into a tulip glass - Vintage 2012

A: Pours a dark mahogany brown with a nice light brown head that fades to a ring and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, and a touch of peat.

T: The taste is similar to the nose and tastes great. Loads of vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, and whiskey.

M: The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little creamy. Not as creamy or as full of a body and I'd like from a Wee Heavy.

O: This is a tasty beverage and one I would love to have again and fresh. No infection in this bottle but it was kept in a fridge most of the time. (624 characters)

Notes taken from a bottleshare at the Phoenix Sun in NYC. Thanks kindly to beerness for the trade.

a - gorgeous ruby red with minimal to no head.
s - nice festive wee heavy. nutmeg and some cinnamon.
t - REALLY good. probably the best BA wee heavy i have had. nutmeg and spicing. good barrel elements and great sweetness.
m - soft and light, an easy drinker for such a seemingly big beer.
o - overall, blown away by this beer. FINALLY, a winner in the town hall BA series. nice sweetness and really great barrel integration. just an impressive beer and probably the only one of the series that i'd be on the look out for again. (628 characters)
