On tap at Hops and Pie, nice to get to try one of these quigente millilitre specialties, apparently this was aged in Breckenridge whiskey barrels. Dark black, decent head. Aroma was extremely floral, much more so than sublimely self-righteous. Flavor was hoppy, bits of chocolate, not too much whiskey. Well done and very different from the regular version.

My first ever of this particular style... It was really tasty. It was, however, an aged IPA... I don't honk I could give out a higher score for this style..
