On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, butter, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with wood and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the barrel aged presence is fairly mild.

Poured into a pint glass from a 32oz growler filled at Central Market

Pours dark with reddish hue and light tan head that this to 1/16". Little to no aroma. Taste is spot on for a barley wine. Not overly boozy, as some have a tendency to be. Can definitely feel the beer in your mouth, but is not overly heavy/sticky. Rather smooth.

At $5.99, this was a great deal on a decent beer.
