Bottle from the brewery, 650ml into a tulip. 55 IBUs.
Reddish amber, white head that retains quite well. Dense lacing. Sweet nose, oaky and barrel notes, 666 malt flavours are pronounced. Some dried cherry or cranberry also. Only a dash of whiskey. Taste has light buttery and oak barrel character, sweet berry fruitiness. Hops are there but flavours are muted, malt is forward here. Medium light, medium low carbonation. Light residual bitterness. Not great but one of the better attempts at a spirit barrel-aged hoppy beer I've had.

Project X bottle from the brewery. Stated ABV of 6% and IBU of 55.
Poured in to Duvel tulip.
A - Very dark amber, almost brown in the centre with a slight glow around the edges. Half a finger of cream coloured head formed from the pour and receded to a thin layer.
S - Sweet caramel, floral hops and a slight noticeable bitterness. Some light oak aromas in the background along with some fuirty notes.
T - A good balance of sweet toffee and caramel with a moderately bitter herbal/earthy hop profile. There is also a light citrus flavour in the background along with a touch of oak whisky. The barrel comes thought very faintly. The finish of has a dry alcohol burn in it; almost like chasing the beer with a shot of vodka. It becomes very distracting and makes this beer difficult to drink. The flavour profile overall was quite good, but the alcohol finish unfortunately ruined the drining experience.
M - Heavily carbonated to the point that it subdues some of the flvaours. Far too much carbonation for my liking.
O - With some work this could become a very interesting beer, but very rough around the edges.
