Its certainly bourbony... good lord! Has potential, but needs some age to tone down the wood and even out. Had on draft, so no real chance to age. Maybe with time this will be a great beer.

I have no clue how this made it to the BA top 250 after the changes - this beer tasted like buttered popcorn and was pretty clearly infected. That implicated about everything.
