Bottle @ City Beer Store on 1/19/15. Pours a clear dark red, brown color with tan head and lacing. Aroma is strongly bourbon and oak with some vanilla and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is full bodied with light to medium carbonation. Flavor is heavy bourbon and oak, brown sugar and caramel malt with some dark fruits. Overall a nice bourbon, oak-aged beer, but these flavors dominate the base beer (which is excellent).

Wee Heavy with Oak Chips Soaked in Bulleit Bourbon

On cask at AleSmith tasting room during 2012 CBC/WBC week. Got the last pull on the cask.

A: Pours a red-tinted dark brown, still managing good clarity, with an airy light khaki head. Very good retention and thick walls of lacing on the glass.

S: Dried red fruit (cherry, raisin), fruity esters, with faint sweetish bourbon notes. Aroma is good but pretty faint.

T: Similar, quite fruity but only a touch of sweetness and caramel and a little acidity. Sits on the palate for a long finish. Pretty clean taste.

M: Sticky, medium body and almost no carbonation. That's what cask'll do to you, I guess; a little carbonation would have elevated this beer quite a bit. Alcohol completely hidden.

O: Seems more like an old ale than a Wee. I don't get the big caramel notes. The bourbon is very faint, hard to notice unless you're on the lookout, but unsurprisingly I don't really detect anything from the oak.
