Definitly one of the best beers that I have had. It is so smooth and flavorful. I love the sweet floral scent that you get drinking this from a snifter. The appearance betrays its power. It is a very light and hazy straw colored beer. It has a slightly sweet and malty taste with a hint of hops. It has a really rich malt flavor. The barrel aging has really mellowed this beer. No bitterness and no bite at the end. Just smooth and rich flavor.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased at Beach Front Liquor, San Clemente CA
Bottled October 25, 2013
Popped and poured into an Allagash Chalice
A: clear amber-honey color, effervescent with a 1.5 inch head. Settled to .25 inch and retained as I allowed the beer to warm slightly. Quite beautiful.
N: roasted malt slightly sweet, hard to sense any bourbon. Not what I expected, very soft of the nose. Pleasant.
T: HUGE burst of flavor on initial taste. A super-intensified version of the nose. Sweet caramel malt on the tongue with unmistakable whiskey tones and yeast. Truly dramatic to sip. Bourbon lingers on the palette. Mouthfeel a little bubbly, I think I would love to try something like this with a heavier body. But it definitely holds up.
This is a must-try for even those not thrilled with this style. I'm hooked already.
