had this beer last night, 4-22-11, at the aprilfest in auburn alabama...
the appearance is great...nice and black....the head holds up nicely
smells like it has been aged....almost a licorice smell to it...dark malts smelled great
the taste is outstanding....dark malts mixed so well with the aged whiskey barrel....the malts character dominates....but hides the alcohol very well
feel is dry....nice lacing...
overall this is outstanding beer...i would love to see this brewery do well in the years to come
Serving type: on-tap

They should really update the label here. There's no mention of being barrel aged on the label. I wasn't sure if this was the base beer (which there isn't one) or the barrel aged beer.
A - Pours a murky deep with with tinges of red to it. Has a one finger tan head.
S - Malts, toffee, caramel and banana esters. For a barrel aged beer, not much barrel on the nose.
T - Ahh, there's that bourbon and oak kick. It's present, but doesn't take over. Also has vanilla, sweet malts and dark fruits.
M - Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Has a wet finish and low abv burn.
O - The barrel nose is weak. It's a solid beer though and the base beer does shine through as well.

Pours a murky red/brown color with almost no head at all.
Aroma is dark fruit, vanilla, oak, with a little Booze.
Flavor is the same as the aroma times two.
Strong vanilla with bready, dark fruit notes.
Warming alcohol throughout but not as boozy as Laika.
Fantastic beer that becomes more complex as it warms.
