4.19/5  rDev +2.9%

A really unique beer thanks to ApostleBrewing, my first from this brewery. Shared with rudzud.

Pours a great fluffy 1+ finger fluffy thick head that fades slowly, tons of gorgeous lacing, super dark color mostly brown like but lack of light gives it black color.

Nose is very interesting, brown malts, toasty, brown sugar, nutty hazelnut, molasses, syrupy like candy, and quickly into baking spices galore, faint cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, holiday spices. Then into barrel, light toasty oak and vanilla, light and barely any bourbon, but then into light brandy soaked raisins, etc, fruit cake like.

Taste starts with the baking spices and biscuit malt, light cardamom, nutmeg, other holiday spices, etc. Then dark fruits, brandy soaked raisins, nuts, almost hazelnut like, etc. then into malts, caramel, hint if toffee and brown malts, brown sugar, molasses, ginger bread cookie, etc. Then into barrel, light toasty oak and hint vanilla, very faint bourbon. A hint of an earthy hop I'm three middle too. Chewy dough like, candy cookie dough, tasty. Finish is sticky semi sweet, more warming booze, lingering candy flavors, ginger, raisins, nuts, etc, light barrel and brown malts and molasses sugar lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, decent but lighter carb, some warming booze.

Overall a nice beer, tasty, light warming booze, nice brown malts, fruits, spices and nuts, great barrel rounding flavors, quite a nice beer, wish the bourbon came through a bit more as it would really kick this beer up.

3.11/5  rDev -23.6%

Fun Series 008. 2013.

A - Poured a deep brown colour with a bid of a muddy look to it. A thin layer of cream coloured head formed and reduced to a thin film over the top of the beer.

S - Spice notes dominate the nose with cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice coming though. Some roast and a hint of chocolate. Not much of the barrel aging is noticeable but there is perhaps a faint hint of oak that I wouldn't have detected had I not been searching for it.

T - A big spice bouquet dominates - ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. Some roast and chocolate and a somewhat astringent oak flavour are also present. No bourbon or vanilla come through at all. Way too much spice in this one, which almost completely mutes the barrel notes aside from an unpleasant oak astringency.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.
