Served as part of a flight, 6 oz sample in a sampler glass at the brewery
Appearance: Great dark copper color and not completely clear.
Smell: After letting the beer sit for a little while, admittedly while tasting the other beers in the flight, the typical bourbon barrel notes come through. Oak, Bourbon, and vanilla.
Taste: There is definitely a pronounced bourbon and alcohol character, but it is not overpowering. The Batch 100 has a nice sweet and malty flavor with a pleasant finish. Oak, Bourbon, Vanilla, Caramel
Mouthfeel: Neither too watery nor too syrupy, it is what you would expect of a Wheatwine.
Overall: Part of a flight at the brewery, last in the one I tried. At 11% and bourbon barrel aged, there was a boozy bourbon character. Really enjoyable sipper. Sweet flavor, but still balanced. This is one of those beers to let sit and warm up and let those flavors really develop.
Serving type: on-tap
