Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DCon on 02-19-2012

Our on-going expedition mostly dedicated to those ever questing ‘rye, whiskey, bourbon, etc. barrel-aged beer zealots’. This particular ‘aged-one’ is a barley-wine ale that rested for a few months in a rye whiskey barrel, imparting it with some not so subtle notes of spicy rye, oak and sweet caramel. As you enjoy this complex and potent beer, please heed those words of advice – “Imbibe with care, lest you be a Daft fool!”

EBW. Aged on barrels, thank god, because this style is just rotten times five if it's not barrel aged.

Pours a little opaque and a little limp. Nice haziness to it, though.

Smells excellent. Big vanilla, giant barley, and raw sour back end.

Tastes nearly as excellent as it smells. Little bit of a neat mustard node on the back end, and while I can see that turning people off frankly I'm just happy to see something new on a gigantic beer. The middles tastes of almonds and there's not hint of booziness at all. Quite nice.
