3.23/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Extremely wispy and airy head, almost entirely very large bubbles with so-so retention at best, general tan color, given this there’s a little more stick to the lacing than expected if not anything spectacular. The liquid is murky, like a still stream, all browns and oranges and yellows, you can kind of see through it but there’s hardly any visible carbonation. The nose is oak influence to the exclusion of most else, coconut custard, butterscotch, vanilla, toffee, creamed coffee and then heavyset prune, date, raisin, dried apricot fruit scents, cinnamon and nutmeg too, a trace of yeasts or unbaked bread dough, has a vinous quality as well, not especially balanced. Medium-bodied, has weight but not proportionately distributed density hence it trails off some at the end. Here there’s a nice nuttiness and more breadiness which zaps some of the undue sweetness out of the caramel, butterscotch, toffee, coconut, crème brûlée flavors. The low carbonation makes it sluggish. The peach, apricot catches up some to the date, fig, prune base. It has flavor, not intensity and after half a glass it’s too monochrome to hold your interest.

Fantastic bourbon barrel aged beer. Smooth taste but yet a lot of weight at the same time. I found the taste to broaden a bit after it warmed up as well. Started off with it slightly chilled then just sipped on it for about 50 mins. Towards the end the flavors where really starting to shine.

Pours a mocha brown that is brilliant in the light with an off white head. It looks kind of dead but a quick waft tells you otherwise. This beer is alive with flavor. A very nicely done brown ale that gives a rich background of flavors. Chocolate, bread, caramel, toasted grains, and a very balanced bourbon, vanilla, and oak flavor. Amazingly easy to drink.
