4/5 rDev +1%
Pours out to a thick beige head and minimal lacing but good retention. Color is a hazy, deep copper. Aroma is esters, honey sweet, vanilla and floral. Flavor is strong on honey and vanilla and sweet malts. Mouthfeel is full and thick. Overall a great braggot.

Quite a good braggot. A nice strong honey flavor combined with a nice bitter hoppiness. It's not a light, sweet honey either, but a good dark, flavorful honey. The whole thing is deepened and rounded by aging in "spirit barrels". Quite flavorful, not too sweet, and a lovely almost vinous aroma. Very satisfying, doubly so to share a bottle with my wife for Mardi Gras!

A - Pours a dark red mahogany with a light tan one finger head. Not much lacing to speak of.
S - Noticeably sweet with the honey. The "spirit" barrel, as said on the bottle, does give off light oak, vanilla and whiskey.
T - The taste pretty much mirrors the smell except that the "spirit" barrel is more front and center with the sweet honey taking a back seat. Like said in an earlier review,
M - Medium bodied and low carbonation. It has a wet finish and I can see how some might see how the sweetness might be cloying.
O - It's probably one of the best beers I've had from Bayou Teche so far. It's unique, refreshing and gives me the whiskey flavor I like.
