Sure missed last year's beer and was excited to hear about this one.
A - Pours black with brown edges when held to the light. A nice tan head lingers for a few minutes and a nice lacing on the glass. Quite beautiful
S - When I popped the top I got an initial whiff of chilles. I get more of that along with a hint of roast.
T - The chilles are present though not hot. More roast in the back but the chilles linger and really dominate. I get some dryness from the oak but again lots of chille.
M - A nice rich full mouthfeel which surprises me as it looks much thinner. Nice carbonation
O - It looks great and has fantastic mouthfeel, I just wish more of the barrel character came out or even more of the citrus...just a bit one sided.
