Was a little disappointed with this beer. For a barrel aged beer I didn't get any heat from it. Instead the coffee notes where the highlights in this one. mouth feel was a little thin but the carb was right on. Overall the beer was decent and if the label didn't indicate it was aged in a whiskey barrel, I would have gave it a better rating.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured very dark black, slight fine bubble amberish head.

The nose is mostly dark roasted coffee. Some dark malts. Fairly simple. No barrel.

The taste mostly follows suit of the nose but a little more complex. Sone bourbon/oak/malts.

The feel is the best part. Very smooth and creamy. High carbonation. Thin.

This beer underwhelmed me. I would have liked more bourbon to go with the excellent coffee notes. This could be epic with some more time in the barrel.
