Huge thanks to Chin for sending this beer to me. Hell. Yes. Stupid fudgey. Woody, sticky, and amazing barrel influence. Bourbon shows up, for sure. To me, though, it's the wood character that makes this beer remarkable. Marshmallow, vanilla, yum. A touch of roast to provide some balance. Smell is a little more complex than the flavor, which is my only "knock" on this beer. Mouthfeel is viscous and rich as I've ever had. A beautiful beer in every regard.
