4.11/5 rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Served a reddish brown color clear and with a light tan head that settles to a thin layer of tiny bubbles.
S: Caramel, toffee, dark cherries, port, vanilla and dark bread make a wonderful bouquet.
T: Sweet, rich malt profile with fresh bread, caramel and a touch of clover honey. Great notes of vanilla and dark cherries and oak from the barrel aging.
M: Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and light carbonation. Slight alcohol warmth.
O: This is a decent old ale that really blended well in the barrel to come out a stellar beer! My first beer from Evolution. Great job on this release! This beer is a great sipper and should definitely be given a try.

Was really looking forward to this barrel aged beer, Poured a nice draft, but so so lacing. Suggested thin brew, Aroma was very good with bourbon and wood/vanilla forward. Now I'm getting excited. But taste is slight. You get the bourbon, but it's light...and nothing really else. Where's the base. Ok Ok there is a taste, but nothing remarkable, It's just there. And the mouth feel is thin. drinkable, but just not exciting. Maybe if there was some real malt back bone and and a solid ABV this would be worth discussing. But overall this is just boring.
