3.99/5 rDev -7%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter at Bern's.
Appearance - Deep brown. No head when they pour it. Leggy on the swirl. Just a few bubbles on the surface.
Smell - Nice caramel and vanilla from the barrel. Bourbon and rich brown sugar. A little bit of fruitiness.
Taste - Bourbon flavor up front. Caramel and brown sugar. Not very sweet. Bitter flavor behind it. A little harsh on the back end.
Mouthfeel - A little bit of the base beer's astringency comes through. Medium carbonation. Overly bitter.
Overall - Glad I had it, but nothing compared to Cognac Church on a Hill. The bourbon barrel isn't quite enough to call this beer great.
