Starr Hill Bourbon Barrel Aged Cryptical on tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).

Pours dark, reddish-brown and sits opaque in the glass. Decent tan head.

Aroma: nice mix of woody bourbon and dark roasted malts.

Flavor: Rich and strong. Dark roasted grains with a complementary bourbon barrel aspect. Lingering aftertaste of toasted dark bread and woody bourbon.

O: Poorly hidden alcohol but otherwise excellent.
