Generously taken from the cellar and poured by my main man at Beachwood in Seal Beach, CA.

Aged well like the one and only Claudia Cardinale. Had all those rum/raisin barrel textures along with a slight musk from the grape. Kind of like Chopin sitting at the piano, Raul was digging this.

Yep!

On draft, Malt and Vine, 10 oz pour

A: Beer is a deep brown, slightly cloudy
S: Warm alcohol smells, followed by a sweetness, and the barrel
MF: A small amount of carbonation dances on the tongue. Beer is thick and chewy. Slight alcohol burn present while experiencing
T: Sweetness, caramel, deep burnt flavors, bourbon, and the barrel. Amazingly complex as it warms, not quite like any beer I've had.
O: A delight.
