This one pours a very dark brown color with a very luxuriously full brown head that is thick, pillowy and settles very slowly leaving a nice delicate lacing down the glass.

The nose is buttery earth tones with the sweetness of malt and bourbon along with hints of dark chocolate, plums and raisins mingled with a pleasant floral note and hints of vanilla.

The taste is sharp, complex and very pleasant. There is a tinge of a sour flavor that is mixed between the bourbon notes and the sweet malt and nicely balanced with the hops. Overall this is exceptionally flavorful with notes of dark chocolate, plums, apricots, raisins, vanilla, coffee and a nice Scottish malt.

The moutfeel is extremely rich and helps to deliver the complexity of these flavors nicely.

Overall this one is exceptional and extremely enjoyable. A real treat to enjoy and I highly recommend it.

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.
