bottle bought at CityBeer in San Francisco, CA.
the barrel aging throws a bourbon-soaked-towell over the smokiness. The front end is like syrup covered burnt sausages, like a weekend breakfast, your smoky breakfast meat slathered in syrupy sweetness.
The nose is smoky, but boozy. The taste is smoky, but boozy, muted, and pushed back to the finish. After you sip and swallow, then, at the finish, that's when you get canadian bacon burnt a little in the frying pan and straight to your plate, that's when you get "I don't smoke, and I just smoked a cigarette", yes, smoke at the finish.
I'm enjoying how the bourbon interacts with the smoke. It's by no means a perfect beer, but it's an interesting take.
