4.34/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Smell: Orange marmalade and oak.

Taste: Orange marmalade, bourbon, and oak.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

The Verdict: Awesome. Smooth and complex, it was aged on orange peel in bourbon barrels. I don't remember the ABV, but it was fairly high. Really good brew.

It doesn't really taste "like an old-fashioned whiskey cocktail." However, it is remarkable for doing an outstanding job of getting the bourbon-barrel age taste right. Too often barrel aged beers are too oak-y or too bourbon-y (in a pickle-y way). But this one is smooth, and yes there is a hint of citrus. Great beer. Had it on tap at Far Bar in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles.
