Thanks to Retsinis for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 11/22/13.

Pours a murky honey brown with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and oak aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, fruit, and oak flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice oak characteristics from the barrel aging all around.

A big, boozy, barrel aged gem! Pours a dark reddish brown. Big bourbon, vanilla, maybe some fig or sweet cherries. It's a little on the sweet side but a wonderful example of a barrel aged old ale. At 15%, this is a big beer and a little boozy, yet still very enjoyable. I'm hoping this will only get better with some aging. Drink one now and put some away…another great beer from The Bruery!
