4.25/5 rDev -1.4%
Thanks to RussianDragon for the share.
The beer is mostly clear and appears a golden amber hue with a small tan head. Aromas of malt, dark fruit, raisin, caramel malt, oak, booze. Light sweetness with warming alcohol throughout. Raisin bread and figs with sweet bready booze. Toasted malt with vanilla and caramel. A nice sipping beer and a good bottle to share.

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.
