Very Good
Notes: Aged in 4 Roses bourbon barrels for 18 months with Madagascar vanilla beans. The thoughtful addition of vanilla in this batch was meant to be complementary and supportive of the flavors of the base beer and carefully selected barrels, not dominant and one dimensional. The end product is a marriage of vanilla, bourbon and oak.

3.68/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Brew appears a hazy brown with white head that fades leaving spotty lace.

It smells a bit of apple, oak and vanilla. The taste is sweet with vanilla, oak and slight herbal bitterness. Plenty of solvent alcohol is present.

This is medium in body with modest carbonatiom. A pretty decent and tasty sipper but far from my favorite in the voodoo brc lineup.

had this blind

head disappeared before i could snap the photo

a- deep crimson red, thin have inch head that disappeared quickly. looks well carbonated, a stir in the glass shows some legs, this guy is big

s- oh shit one wiff i could tell, this is life! dark fruits, bourbon, vanilla and more dark fruits. as it warms it really opens up with some spiciness

t- woa baby this is a home run. big bourbon soaked dark fruits, waves of flavor. prickly spiciness. getting instant flashbacks of ba hi-fi rye circa 2012ish

m- thinner than expected, has a good amount of carb that makes it lighter than it is. rolling it on the tongue just spreads the love

o- since writing this review it’s only gotten better and better. great sweetness, great barrel, this is great!


my guess was k13 rye since the vanilla is so smooth and not overpowering
