look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours a deep brown with slight reddish hues. Small head, less than a finger, dissipates quickly leaving some bubbles floating about. Definitely more carbonated than Bourbon Fred which I was a little disappointed with.
Smell is simply amazing. Deep, deep, warm bourbon tones and smokey oak tones. Rich malts, caramel, maybe some plums. The barrel aging just made this beer a different creature, so great!
The taste actually tops the aroma which I was surprised. I scored it perfect mainly because of how balanced it was. The bourbon is there and great, but it doesn't dominate the beer. The multiple levels of caramel, toffee, leather, dark sugary fruits, and oak are just amazing. The beer seems to morph and reveal new layers with every sip.
The mouth feel is impressive as well, slightly syrupy, but very smooth and not too hot. Great carbonation level which real makes this beer that much more enjoyable after having tried Bourbon Fred which felt like water in the mouth.
Awesome! Amazing! Delicious! I want more! So much more! what else can I say?...If this isn't on he top of your wants/whales list....PUT IT THERE!
