4.38/5  rDev +1.4%

Poured into goblet. Dark brown, with little head or lacing. You get the carmel and sweetness along with the barrel on both the smell and taste. A little too heavy on the barrel, but I'm nit picking. As always, Alesmith provided great body to the beer.

This one pours a very dark brown color, nearly black, with a very small head, and not much lacing.

This one smells like toffee, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, leather, vanilla, and oak.

This is a big and sweet toffee bomb, with pumpernickel, bourbon spice, dark fruit, caramel, chocolate, vanilla and oak. It's all that I want out of this sort of thing.

This is medium bodied, creamy and silky-feeling, with a lower level of carbonation, soft but supportive.

Alesmith continues to run one of the absolute best barrel program in the country. This is great stuff.
