A: The beer pours a dark brown body with a thin tan head that quickly fades away to nothing.

S: There is a good amount of bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet dark malts and a little bit of booze.

T: Like the smell, I really pick up on the bourbon at first, but it mixes really well with the sweetness and creates a nice delicious beer. As the beer lingers, I start to get a tobacco and earthy type flavor.

M: The beer is super smooth and goes down with ease. There is a tiny bit of crispness on the back of the throat and the tip of the tonuge. It also has a very thin body, which makes it easy to drink.

O: This is a very tasty beer that really is enjoyable. I also feel this is the right step for Ranger Creek to introduce their barrel aged beers and I cant wait to see what they think up in the future.

375ml, Riedel tulip

A: Pours pretty darn black colored. Four full fingers of light tan head. It's a fluffy head too. Lots of carbonation.

S: Smells of bacon smoked meats and roasted campfire. Even through the head. Getting some coffee and dark chocolate.

T: Not infected. Very carbonated. Lots of smoked meats. Campfire. Roasted malt. Wishing there was more barrel. I know they ramped the malts and hops, but missing barrel here. Dry finish.

M: Highly carbonated. Big medium.
