2010 vintage that got lost in the cellar, so oak and whiskey are probably long gone.
Fairly hazy, peachy copper with a foamy cream head. Aroma is herbal and sweet, with caramel malt dominating, and a surprisingly strong whiskey and vanilla character. Flavor is also sweet and malty, with said whiskey and vanilla adding complexity, and a lightly bitter, oaky, toasted finish. There's a bit of a tangy character that's slightly offputting. Not sure if it's barrel-derived, but that wouldn't surprise me. Still retains a bit of alcohol warmth.

Hadn't seen this one before and thought it was neat. Loved Dead Guy and enjoyed Double Dead Guy so I figured I'd pick it up.
Poured into pilsener glass; light amber like honey in color with a fluffy long-lived white head made of very fine bubbles.
Smells of buttery crackery malt, light caramel.
Taste reminds me a lot of Double Dead Guy, without the booze heat. Crackery caramel malt, tons of Maillard reaction flavor with some light vanilla and oak in the finish.
Mouthfeel is clean and medium bodied.
Overall, not much difference from Double Dead Guy here. Maybe I should try them side-by-side but eh well. Still tasty!
