Some nice barrel notes on the nose: caramel, tobacco, some char, coconut, and some spicy barrel notes.

Tastes follow suit with plenty of oak from the barrel and the finish lingers much like a spirit. Lots of alcohol feel on the finish, which is surprising after this much time.

Feel is really the downfall of the beer. Too thin to really support all the interesting things happening in this beer. I know the thin mouthfeel of some CW beers has been beaten to death, but it's palpable, when drinking this, how it detracts from this beer for me.

Fun try and opportunity

Boozy and a bit oxidized at this point. The thin body actually works well with this treatment. There's a slight spice from the barrel. It certainly has a warming quality when drinking. I'd drink this soon if you have it. I don't think this beer is improving.
