750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky deep amber body. Big khaki head and an uneven collar.

Smell - Grapefruit hops. Nutty malts. Light whiskey, but not much.

Taste - Much more rye flavor here. Grapefruit hops. Caramel and brown sugar. Bright fruity flavor to the malts, too. Boozy.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Well carbonated.

Overall - The barrel doesn't do a whole lot in this version.
