A: Used motor oil with a tiny ring of lacing that accounts for the head.

S: Bourbon, molases, medium roast coffee.

T: A quick wash of tart dark fruits and then the barrel notes come in. There are some strange sour notes that come in and dance with the sweet caramels, wood, and booze. Not entirely unpleasant but unexpected. Not as complex and full as the nose let on.

M: Slightly thinner than the appearance suggested though still syrupy. It foams up on your tongue.

O: The smell is absolutely amazing. But the taste, while nice, falls a little shy of all that the aroma promised.

Part of a special "barrel" week at The Beer Junction. $4.00 for a 4oz pour, listed as 12.5% ABV. Deep, rich brown color. Sweet aroma, like maple syrup. Flavor was potent! Alcohol in your face. It was a total palate wrecker. Viscosity was thin-syrupy, low carbonation. Sweet aftertaste. There were particles of something left in the glass. Not sure if it was from the beer or the draft line. No lace left. This was part of a 4 beer sampler (all barrel aged) and I would say it came in 4th but that is because they were all pretty dang good. Definitely not bad and worth a try.

Serving type: on-tap
