From the wood of Connecticut..or rather, barrels from Ransom in OR.
Cloudy dark brown pour, minimal head, a bit of lace.
Complicated aromas, indeed, pinot, pedio, caramel, whisky.
Flavor is intense with hop bitterness, followed by the pinot noir and oak barrel tannins with some chocolate. Booze evident and not really even attempting to hide out. Definitely a different balance found here. Wasn't too much a fan of the regular version on account of too much malt, but the barrel shows off and disputes the bill, bringing forth a lot of really amazing flavors.
Solid effort from B United, looking forward to more beers from this project.
Serving type: on-tap

Tapped a special cask of this stuff thinking it was the unaged version and got quite the shock when first trying a sample, in fact the bar manager pulled it off the bar before we confirmed it was indeed this beautiful aged version...
A: Dark Cherry Brown with a thin white ring of head persistent around the edges of the glass...
S: musky with notes of sherry, apricot and caramel, beautiful depth
T: Tart with heavy malt richness and a frame of bitter hop... Berries, Tree Fruits, Dried Fruits and walnut... very pruney with note of menthol & tobacco... beautiful late impression of barrel pinot fruitiness and whiskey wood bitterness
M: Tart and astringent... refreshing sour bite cleanses your pallette providing a solid lift for this medium to heavy bodied sour
O: Very lucky to have tried this... B. United does some special things in their Zymatore barrel room!
