"Curt's blend of our new wee heavy, Tenacious Wee and our yet to be named barlewine aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels for 12 months."

Cask offering at Voodoo served in a barrel room collection snifter. The brew appears a very dark brown to black color with a finger of tan head that holds throughout the duration. Some patchy lace sticks to the glassware. Overall, pretty fantastic retention.

The aroma is quite sweet smelling with vanilla leading the way. Notes of chocolate and toasted grain come through with a kick of bourbon that imparts a mild tangy boozy component. Some caramel and toffee noted are an after-thought.

The flavor strikes with booze upfront. Some roasted grain element before a solvent alcohol kick. Mid-palate are flavors of chocolate, vanilla, toffee and caramel. The aftertaste boasts soft notes of barrel induced coconut.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is boozy and unique. If a wee heavy and barleywine really are what comprimised this blend, consider me super interested in trying those individual brews when they become available.

On tap at Voodoo Homestead in Homestead, PA. This is a mix of Tenacious Wee and K13.

Pours a dark tawny brown, with a small amount of head, and basically no lacing.

Smells like caramel, bourbon, toffee, and brown sugar.

I personally don't think this tastes better than the sum of its parts, but it still tastes quite good, anyway. I get more K13 than Tenacious Wee here, with honey, caramel, bourbon, molasses, and brown sugar dominating. This is quite sweet. The bourbon is not overpowering really at all.

This is fairly thick bodied, with a smooth and rich mouthfeel. The carbonation level is pretty low.

Voodoo can't really miss. Both K13 and Tenacious Wee are better than this, but with how good they both are, you really can't have a bad blend anyway.
