22 oz bottle, the date notches don't make sense. Maybe August of 2014?

Muddy brown in color, only a thin head. Nice whiskey aroma, a bit of caramel and vanilla. Similar taste. Lingering aftertaste. Medium bodied, lower carbonation.

No formal review on this one, because I drank it last night. It's not a bad beer at all, I just think the barrel-aging somehow eliminated the complexity and character that makes the regular version so good and interesting. This tasted like a straight up American Barleywine to me. Meh.

Wonderful malty taste with a boozy kickback that will get your attention.

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at Oneinchaway's tasting.

Pours a murky honey brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, citrus zest, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is surprisingly hoppy along with the sugary bourbon barrel characteristics.

Serving type: bottle.
