I was excited to open my painstakingly acquired White Oak (and Black Tuesday). I couldn't drink this one though. I split it with two BA's and luckily, they were able to polish off my bottle for me to avoid the alcohol abuse of a drain pour.
For me, a beer as delicate as this is just not appropriate for bourbon bbl aging. The poor beer was completely overwhelmed and it was just a boozy bourbon bomb. Both the smell and taste were overpowering sweet whisky. I had the same problem with Allagash Curieux before they toned it down (or maybe it was just more mellow on tap).
I feel bad giving a poor review to such a revered brewery but this one was unpalatable to me.
