4.18/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into tulip 4/12/12

A dark brown with red highlights when held to the light, nice large tan head starts off three fingers high and slowly falls to an island leaving lots of soapy lace, pretty sexy looking brew

S lots going on in this department, the tropical fruits work well, more papaya then mango and a little some caramel apple and faint citrus, loads of caramel, brown sugar and not the funk I was expecting after reading Brett on the bottle but there's some faint funky fruity notes. There's some woody notes from the barrel that mingle with all the other aspects, my only complaint is the booze needs too mellow

T more fruit and the caramel comes out heavy, a little more barrel and the booze that comes with it, fairly sweet and the booze is holding this one back

M thick and syrupy with good carbonation and its pretty sticky on the lips, the booze goes right to my chest, shes a little hot

O perhaps a little high here but I really liked this beer its really only the booze holding this one back, its an original concept and the fruit and barrel just compliment each other so well this was a good idea

I'm pretty pissed at myself for opening this one young, I could really see this becoming something absolutely amazing down the road. Oh well I enjoyed it today but I had my chance to stock up but at 30$ a bottle I only had the balls to buy one blind, oh well.
