Hopes were low for this one after suffering through a Perrin Grapefruit IPA. Figured thiw was another upstart with no business barrel aging. Wrong! Artful use of the barrel on this one. Does it taste like Whoppers? Nah. More like Milk Duds though, and that works for me.

Growlers of this are worth trading for at a modest premium. Wonderful beer. Go get.
