look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pours a dark brown with a small frothy tan head. The smell is a huge sour bourbon and vinegar aroma more pungent than any barrel aged beer I have come across. The taste begins with oak flavors followed by cocoa, alcohol and sour flavors. The mouthfeel is crisp and goes down easy with significant carbonation that tingles the tongue. Drinkability is good. I would not have more than on of these in a sitting but this is truly one of the most unique beers I have had to date.
Serving type: bottle

4.08/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: black, maybe dark mahogany. A small tannish head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind. Completely opaque.
Smell: mostly bourbon. Maybe some chocolate.
Taste: lots of bourbon. Low alcohol. Some chocolate. Very smooth.
Mouthfeel: very light. A little bit of lager aspect to it.
Overall: a nice light bourbon barrel beer. Pretty light and nicely simple. Some lager aspects to it in taste and feel. I'd say it's a strong bourbon tasting beer with very little others tastes and very low other character.
Serving type: on-tap
