Very enjoyable to drink overall. A bit boozy on both ends, but otherwise a good find. Would probably age well.

Bottle shared at August THT. Very dark brown pour with a medium height tan head. Notes of whiskey barrel, bourbon, oak barrel, vanilla and coconut. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation and a spicy bourbon finish.

750 ml bottle. Good looking brew. Aroma and taste were solid but fell short of expectations. Bourbon was mild, wood flavor was there, not much sweetness. Had a different taste I'm guessing from the wheat. Slick feel but a bit on the thin side. Enjoyed it, nice brew, just was hoping for more.

What a find at a local liquor store! One of my favorite beers already, but barrel aged in whiskey barrels, what else do you need?

A-Poured out like used motor oil, with a solid 2 finger khaki head that sticks around for most of the duration, but dissipates to just a ring. Very nice looking beer.

S-Molasses, whiskey, plum, roasted sweet malt, slightly boozy with an inviting aroma. Slighty robust and delicious. Just want to keep smelling it.

T-Deep roasted malts, molasses, sweet whiskey and faint chocolate. Extremely balanced for what it is. Goes down super smooth and Slighty bitter. Has a pleasant whisky malt after taste that lingers. Very nice.

M-Thick like molasses, mild carbonation, with a roasted whiskey dry finish. Brings you back for more.

O-Amazing beer to say the least!! I wish I had a full cellar of these guys. Rasputin never fails to deliver, in any form.

A: thick khaki head and dark espresso in appearance

S: not as much bourbon as i expected, subtle booze and some dark chocolate

T: This fell so flat for me- some dark fruits and ever so faint bourbon- was expecting sweetness from the wheat but nothing. damn, what a shame

F: too thin and watery, coulda used some cloyingness but didn't even have that. finishes clean

O: Im sooooo deflated with how much this let me down, I wanted to like this one real bad but it is just not up to par with others in its style and the price point on top of it makes this a likely one and done for me.
