Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer
Appearance: Deep, dark brown - nicely sized, creamy, tan head - fades to a few wisps of a cap, nice ring that lasts forever, leaves a few nice spots
Smell: Chocolate and bourbon, in some semblance of balance - dark chocolate, baker's chocolate, and coffee - a strong bourbon presence, with some wood, vanilla, and booze - somewhat backed up by the malts - roasty, burnt
Taste: It's like mocha, with bourbon - bourbon and wood are in the front and quite potent, and actually become more intense as it warms (suboptimal) - dark chocolate - lightly burnt malts - roasty coffee - vanilla - malty and vanilla sweetness, a bit too sweet
Mouthfeel: On the light side of full body, smooth, with a lot of heat at the end
Overall: Yeti in a barrel, slightly more interesting than a barrel of monkeys
I should probably stop drinking bourbon barrel aged beers. I haven't really enjoyed one in a while. This issue notwithstanding, I can appreciate this beer. The Yeti base is strong enough to hold up to the bourbon. And this isn't a wood bomb like Oak Aged Yeti.
