Served from a 750ml C&C Bottle. Thanks to JTMiller03!

A-Murky amber brown with a nice off white head, minimal retention and lacing

S-Sweet caramel malts, molasses, bourbon, oak and some deeply ripe dark fruit. Really nice

T-Subtle notes of caramel and molasses play well with the boozy bourbon/vanilla and oak. Some cereal grains and dark fruits are in the background

M-creamy and viscous

O-This comes across as an English Barleywine that spent some time in a barrel more than a brown ale. Beautifully balanced and integrated while remaining somewhat assertive. A real treat

Bomber shared two ways. Received in trade thanks to Newkidroundhere.

Pours deep murky brown, light khaki head. Head recedes quickly. Not much of a looker.

Aroma is absolutely killer though. Really heavy freshly cut oak and whiskey. Smells literally like the inside of a used whiskey barrel. Some sweetness from the malts comes through, but the aroma is all barrel here, and a unique barrel at that.

For an imperial brown ale aged in whiskey barrels, this is right on point. Couldn't ask for a better representation. Barrel character is ridiculous, fresh oak, vanilla, cellar must, faint sweet chocolate malt, touch caramel. Really well done, and very well rounded beer.

Carbonation is good, a touch on the high side, but I think it moves the beer along. This is a fantastic barrel aged beer. Prairie is for real, they know what they're doing. Standard lineup, check. Funky brews, check. Barrel aging, check. Keep an eye out for these folks.
