A - Dark, murky ruby brown. Pours a nice creamy, smooth, off-white to slightly tan head. Average retention leaving a faint lacing.

S - A little on the faint/weak side for my liking. Some tart raspberry along with other berry aromas. A bit of caramel malt. Oak and hints of vainilla. Nice aroma, but I could use more of it.

T - Amped up version of the nose. The barrel flavors are very nicely integrated. Slightly tart raspberry, strawberry, and the faintest hint of cherry. Some caramel malt. Not really sour, but slightly tart and acidic. Nice kick of vainilla, oak, and whiskey that provide more of a sweetness than a heat kick. These are present in the back throughout, but come out strongest on the finish.

M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Fairly smooth and creamy with a slightly spritzy feel on the finish.

D - Everything is nicely integrated and nothing is over the top. Smooth and easy to drink, especially for the style. The barrels provide great flavor without overpowering the beer. I had no problem finishing a pint of this.

Notes: Not overpowering tart or acidic and not sour at all, but there is a definite tang to this beer. I really like what the Templeton barrels added to this. It goes down very smooth and easy. One of the best beers from Peace Tree.

A nice barrel aged ale. Great balance! The best, if not only, aged red ale I have had. On tap in Oskaloosa.

Had this on draft.

Murky rust color; barely see through.

Small off-white head; no lacing.

Strong whiskey smell, caramel undertone.

Thin mouthfeel.

Tastes like the world's smoothest whiskey; no wincing here. A triumph of barrel aging.

L (4.25) - Nice amber/reddish coloration here. A little bit of dirty white head.
S (4) - Not a whole lot of aroma here. A little bit of the whiskey, maybe.
T (4.25) - Solid tasting beer. I'd really recommend this to someone who isn't sure about barrel aged beers, as the whiskey melds with the beer quite well. That being said, the beer taste isn't too strong either. A nice mellow amber taste.
F (4.25) - Good drinkable beer. Not particularly bitter, and carbed about right.
O (4.25) - This is a solid beer all around. I'm not sure people will line up to trade this around the world, but it's a solid barrel aged offering from a solid brewery.

Not a Flanders red by any means. But it's a great beer with tremendous bourbon flavor. Very light bodied for barreling.
