Thanks to Geoi for the bottle.
375ml corked and caged brown bottle poured into a chalice/tulip.
A: Pours pretty much jet black. Medium head on the pour without much retention because of the barrel aging. Some lacing but not much. Some slick legs.
S: An interesting mix of Belgian stout and BW/strong ale. The stout comes through a bit more but by just a nose. The bourbon and brandy mixing is also interesting, with the brandy just slightly stronger. Maybe a bit of bug infection from the extended barrel contact? Some tart fruitiness comes through, though that might be from the stout?
T/M: Plenty of bourbon and brandy with dank barrel. The stout definitely comes out more than the AS, which is good but somewhat unfortunate. The tart fruitiness comes through even more and I'm pretty sure that it's from some barrel infecting. Unintentional as far as I know but it's not off putting... but unexpected. Body is full with mild carbonation. A touch more carbo would help things a bit.
D: ABV and very thick. Definitely a sipper.
