look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at the brewery.

A: Pours brown with a dime of off white head.

S: Big malt aroma followed by bourbon.

T: Sweet roasted malt followed by bourbon and just a hint of alcohol heat. Finish is sweet and oaky.

M: The barrel thinned this out somewhat and the carbonation is lacking a little.

O: A decent BBA beer for warmer months when your wanting something less heavy.

Tap at Brewpub. Dark brown/mohoghany ;pour, off white head recedes to ring.

Aroma, malty caramel, vanilla lightest oak.

Taste is a bit on the sweet side. A lot of caramel and vanilla. Hint of toast and smoke sneaks in at the end. This improves as it warms.

Lightest alcohol warming, but nothing in the taste. A nice creamy carbonation but it's just a tad thin. Still a good brew, really like the way barrel works with Scotch ales.
