look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a lighter brown color with a slightly reddened tint along the edges. There is a small off-white head that recedes rather quickly.

Aromas begin with strong amounts of oaky bourbon, almost completely dominating. There is a bit of toasted maltiness, sweet caramel maltiness and some emerging nuttiness to help to balance but the boozy bourbon.

The tastes follow the nose pretty much with a small amount of toasted breadiness and nutty maltiness but the sweet bourbon jumps right in to assert itself. Oak, vanilla and whiskey continue to emerge and overtake the flavor profile.

The mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with medium to low carbonation. Finish is slightly boozy from the barrel aging.

Overall this is a nice idea but barrel aging such a low ABV beer is usually not a good idea and this is no exception. The base beer is almost undetectable because they barrel aged a 6% brown ale; maybe partial barrel aged would have been a safer voyage but this basically drinks like a boilermaker (shot of whiskey dropped in a beer).
