Amazing brew! this may be one of the all time greats for drinkability regarding bourbon barrel aged beers. Beer pours a subtle head, has a wonderful aroma and the taste is amazing! subtle yet recognizable bourbon notes tease the palate as the brown ale base beer holds strong. This brew was a big surprise and I would purchase it again for sure.

Bottom line: great brew!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a nice dark brown / black color, good tan head, leaves some lacing

Smell: Oak, vanilla, roasted malts

Taste: Some nice barrel character and oak up front, vanilla, theres really mellowed out roasted malts, some caramely malts. Lots of depth to this flavor, but some real good smooth mellowness from the barrel aging

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, low to medium carbonation

Overall: Fantastic. Best barrel aged beer I have had so far. Also appreciate that it is a normal abv beer being barrel aged, doesn't have any boozy character, and is well rounded

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: The liquid chocolate arrives with a modest khaki head that leaves copious amounts of lacing behind

Smell: Caramel and chocolate with a hint of Bourbon

Taste: The caramel and chocolate opening is followed up by some oak and vanilla tones; the Bourbon arrives in the finish along with a hint of nuts

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; very creamy

Overall: Just an impressive job with a low ABV barrel-aged beer; extraordinary balance and creamy mouthfeel
