Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, smoke, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and smoke flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that doesn't really have any barrel aged characteristics at this point other than wood qualities

500ml bottle poured into a Funkwerks snifter.
A~ extremely dark brown with a slightly bigger head then the other 2 versions and a tiny bit of lacing.
S~ mostly smoked meat, bacon, and dark malts. then some sweetness from the bourbon and a tiny bit of wine barrel funk.
T~ bourbony caramel, vanilla up front. followed by smokey bacon, more dark malts and some zesty rye. a tiny bit of wine barrel funk on the finish. bourbon and maple syrup sticks with you for what seems like forever! definitely not a bad thing!
M~ honestly its probably the smoothest of the series. carbonation of the bourbon version, so not bad but it could use a little more. maple syrup thickness from start to finish!
O~ surprisingly not my favorite of the series. i have a feeling this version got more bourbon than cabernet or it could have something to do with the age. the bourbon might have just taken over a bit. no real complaints about that though haha, i was just hoping for a little more funk.
