Thanks to barrelbeer for this extra in a box that landed two days ago. Interesting wrapped can with a metal twist off cap. Old school meets new school.

Black. Little to no head. The aroma is a steady stream of barrel with an undercurrent of thick, drippy malt. Not bad.

Shadow Proof – Bourbon Barrel Aged is thick. Redwood thick. Kardashian ass thick. Pompeo head thick. Huge, sweet malts are complemented by a gently cresting wave of bourbon, with mild additions of chocolate, wood, soft/smooth roast, & a sweet, lush finish. The can should definitely be bigger.

An extra. A nearly unknown to me brewery. A triple high off the wall. More beer should deliver like this. Excellent beer & fantastic choice of extra.

Pours black with a perfect mocha head that’s a finger thick. Aroma-bourbon and chocolate, a little fig. Even a hint of strawbana. Taste- this is a bourbon bomb. A little bitterness from the alcohol and the hops. Dark chocolate, fudge, semisweet chocolate. Mouthfeel a little thin and bubbly. Overall- pretty solid. One of sun kings most robust reserve options. And well done.
