Hazy golden orange colour, 1.5 fingers of white head, lots of lace here as well. Smell is a bit funky upfront, big barrel presence, a fair bit of fruit, vinous congnac notes come in, some spice with more oak and vanilla. Taste is a bit spicy up front, cognac is a little light on the pallate but the oak is pretty in your face, fruity in the finish with a bit of alcohol heat also. Lightly carbonated, medium light feel. This wasn't bad and actually quite interesting, however certainly not good enough for repeat purchases especially at the price point of this.

Poured in to tulip.
A - Hazy medium orange, amber in the middle. Half a finger of dirty white head.
S - Big woody aroma up front that gives way to sweet caramel, pear and light citrus notes.
T - Huge oak/woody flavour up front from the barrels. the base beer adds caramel, pear, peach and a light citrus flavour. The finish is oaky with a big astringency and a touch of cognac coming through. After a few sips the astringency really becomes distracting. The barrel didn't really come together with the base beer well, perhaps this was meant to age? A little rough.
M - Light to medium body. Light carbonation.
O - My second experience with a Cameron's barrel aged beer. This was better than the last one, but still very rough.
