Aged in charred bourbon barrels for two years according to the folks at BBC.
Appearance: Half pint glass arrives with a clear, but dark, mahogany body with a small beige head. Head is shortlived, and no lacing is present.
Aroma: Caramelized malt and sherry notes dominate the bouquet. Some smokiness from the charred bourbon barrels, but no bourbon aromas.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and silky.
Taste: Sherry like in texture, with caramelized maltiness. Chocolate covered cherry notes pique the palate. Burnt caramel, and slight char smokiness. Hopping is subdued but provides good balancing bitterness.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability, but not malty enough to nail the style. Alcohol is cleverly concealed, given the abv, and I'm surprised that no bourbon notes are evident. Very tasty!
