Bottle split into snifter
A. Dark tan with amber hue while being poured, yet appears darker in the glass except when held up to the light. Still opaque. Clear, appears slightly syrupy, virtually no head.
S. Bourbon and alcohol, vanilla, mild caramel. Can not detect the hop aroma they claim is suppose to be apparent due to the 5% double jack addition.
T. Sweet caramel and vanilla with brandy undertone. Hops in the back seem to mix this up a bit in the wrong direction and do more to bring out unpleasant alcohol nuances then add to the smoother barrel flavors.
M. Slick and a little syrupy, alcohol has a burning effect.
O. Ok barrel blend, falls far short of FW14
