750 ml capped bottle poured into a snifter.
11% ABV, Bottled on 09/10/13
A - Rustic and muddy copper in color, this barrel-aged 11% brew pours with a fleeting ivory foam that fizzles out to a loose cap of foam.
S - Boozy rye whiskey with nice sharp notes of spicy rye that wonderfully compliment the robust, bready malt base. Whiskey balls dipped in caramel dissolve in the nose with a finish of earthy, lightly pine-kissed hops.
T - Incredibly smooth barrel aging brings mellow rye spice to the rich malt base with lightly whiskey-dipped marble rye bread drizzled with caramel.
M - Barrel-aged Old Numbskull brings a really nice smoothness to the palate that, despite the beer's really malty body, finishes dry and slightly thin from the high alcohol.
O - This barrel-aged Old Numbskull is pretty nice; the aroma is bold, the flavor and body are smooth. The barrel-aging is complimentary to the base beer which brings everything together wonderfully.
