Absolutely foul. More flavor does not mean better. It is a clear indication of rater bias that the brews with the most intense flavor profiles are the highest rated on this site. Again, MORE IS NOT BETTER!! The barrel aging just turns it into bourbon. Would never buy again or recommend. Drinking this will make your stomach churn. Two thumbs down and big middle finger to all the beer snobs that think they're sophisticated drinking this swill. CHEERS MATES!
