32 oz. howler poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Almost black. A little transparent at the edges. Medium collar.
Smell - Lots of whiskey. Tons of vanilla. Nutty malts. Milk chocolate. Definitely has a malt ball aroma.
Taste - Woody as hell. Whiskey permeates. Vanilla is very strong. Malt flavor has a chocolate flavor. Nutty caramel malt in the finish. Less of the malt ball flavor, though.
Mouthfeel - Sharp whiskey. Medium body. Could be chewier.
Overall - Surprisingly good. Good beer, barrel, and adjuncts.
Serving type: growler

Sampled on draft 22 Mar 2014.
A: Dark black body, tan head with decent retention. Nice lacing.
S: Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Malty sweetness. Bourbon and oak are hinted.
T: Bourbon and oak lead, and carry through to the finish. These are undertones, and not overbearing. Milk chocolate comes in quickly, and goes to the finish, with the roasted malts coming out neat the end. Not quite a malted milk ball, but pretty damn close.
M: Thick, with soft carbonation. The malts leave a lot of sticky sweetness on the palate, to complement a slight bitterness in the finish. Well balanced.
O: WOW! If you visit the Perrin tap room, try this...it's not perfect, but it's really, really good.
Serving type: on-tap

Hopes were low for this one after suffering through a Perrin Grapefruit IPA. Figured thiw was another upstart with no business barrel aging. Wrong! Artful use of the barrel on this one. Does it taste like Whoppers? Nah. More like Milk Duds though, and that works for me.
Growlers of this are worth trading for at a modest premium. Wonderful beer. Go get.
