I've been feeling a little burnt out on RIS lately. I can't even look at the Marshall Zhukov in my fridge. That burnt sugary sweetness they all finish with has just fried me out a bit, become just a bit too much, too cloying. That said, this is obviously a great beer. If anything, I wish the bourbon was even a little more forward, to cut into that RIS sweetness. A great beer, but in a style that's fading from favor with me a little.

lots of Bourbon coming through. I did enjoy this, but I like the non-barrel aged better
