The pour I had was a boozy, malty, slightly hoppy mess.

Draft at McLaddens Northampton, MA.

A- Slightly hazy deep golden body into a baby snifter. Small white frothy cap ends as a creamy band. Rare spots of lacing.

S- Straight up Bourbon barrel woody wet oak and whiskey off the top and not much else. Something slightly fruity like the pale ones.

T- Very woody here again with a plank of oak coating the palate. Semi sour feel to the peppery Bourbon and hints of alcohol. Vanilla, pale fruits, herbal spicy tones and caramel.

MF- Smooth and silky medium body with a creamy overall consistency. Carbonation is on the high side with a bite to it.

Seems just like a medium malty feel with a big, unbalanced whiskey barrel. Super fresh woody oak and Bourbon dominate the experience.
