Tap to Taster

@Drakes Brewing, San Leandro, CA

App- Darker than Cuvee with more of the brown ale coloring taking over. This was a bit darker in the center but still had the red edges, Left a stronger lace and cling and was more of a thicker pour.

Smell- This had a good aroma. Needed more to warm and breath with the base brown malts taking over and then a bit of the rich sweetness from the brandy. Had a touch more barrel notes to it with some strong oak and vanilla.

Taste- This was quite unique and more of a strong ale than Cuvee. Retained a touch of equal parts from each beer and then the blend gave it some pop. The malts are a touch thick and the barrel character adds coconut and vanilla and candy like sugary notes.

Mouth- A solid medium body and a solid medium carbonation. A bit better than Cuvee but not jumping to 4.5

Drink- A very nice beer and blended well. Probably the 2nd place of the 3 barrel aged beers I had at Drakes.
