4.16/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black glass shows some ruby edge when backlit. Holds a tight tan head of foam that laces well.

Smell: A bit boozy, barrel notes are strong, a bit a of black bread background shows some depth. Faint earthy hop notes too.

Taste: The Bourbon and Barrel aspects are front and center, but don't overwhelm the beer base, subtle grape esters give a doppelbock angle, the total package manages to come across as soft and easy, a rare trick when bring this much wood.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, low carbonation, almost cask level, finishes fairly clean with a little oil at the end.

Overall: Masterfully made beer. The brewers have dialed in the big flavors to a point where they pop without drowning out everything else, and everything else is really well made too! Manages to be an experience while still being very drinkable; great beer!
