Picked this up a Gravity in Olympia
A- looks like Dead Guy... maybe a little darker. Nice copper, gold hue. Thin head that dissipates quickly.
S- Faint aromas of malt and wood.
T- For a barrel aged beer, this is really something else. Most of the BA beers I'm used to have such an up front woodiness, or booziness in some cases. The barrel is really subdued in this beer. You get some wood and whiskey right on the nose, along with the earthy hops and bready malts of the base beer. The whiskey shows up again on the tail end, with some almost berry-like flavors. The flavors are very well integrated, and unlike many BA beers, this one is ready to drink NOW. A great example of what ELSE can be done with whiskey barrels.
M- Light, moderately carbonated, sticks around on the tongue for a while.
D- Much like the regular Dead Guy, this goes down really easy with a lot of flavor. If this came in decently priced sixers, I would buy this for a session. Not my favorite style, but nonetheless, awesome.
