A- Deep tawny hazy orange that leave about a two finger head that fades quickly but maintains a minimal coverage.
S-Sweet caramel malt aroma with small hints of whiskey.
T-Taste follows the nose with the sweet caramel malts with a slight honey sweetness. Then I get a mild whiskey/oak barrel flavor thats not overwhelming and grows stronger as the beer warms up. Also picking up some slight vanilla notes.
M-Noting exceptional, medium body, light carbonation.
O- This whiskey/barrel flavor is very subtle. I really like the beer because dead guy is one of my go to beers and will still get this beer on occasionally in the future, but would have liked a little more of the barrel flavor.

I love beer aged in oak and just could not pass this one up.
Appearance 4.0: Gorgeous, deep golden color. Nice, 1/2" head that stuck around for most of the session. Opaque with some particulate matter, which is always a plus in my book. Very nice lacing.
Smell 4.0: Nice nose on this brew. Subdued and somewhat dry, but with a very nice bouquet of corn, oak tannins, malt, vanilla, wood rosin...lovely.
Taste 4.25: Front is slightly tart, but mellow. Middle is where the barley and the oak start to mingle and...wow...what a delicious mingling it is. Also, at this taste level, I detect hints -way in the back of the palate-- of whiskey. Finish features a fantastic vanilla/wood rosin taste mingling with the liquor notes and the light hops along with the malt. Aftertaste is long and features so many flavors, but the oak notes are of special interest to me.
Mouthfeel 3.75: Right on the nose for this style and the tastes they are trying to accentuate.
Overall 4.0: Excellent beer. Reminds me of Innis and Gunn in the old days, before demand forced them to change how they aged their beers. However, I&G never featured taste collages like these. Excellent balance on almost every level and just an all-around fantastic beer. Recommended.
