Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Sweet, sugary and malty. Some bitterness on the finish. Also bourbon barrel notes and toffee. Well balanced overall.

On tap at the brewery, I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. Looks like an imperial stout, dark black. Aroma is a nice mix of bourbon barrel, booze, and maple syrup. Flavor is much the same. The bourbon barrel does a great job of cutting the sweetness of the original making this a couple notches better in my opinion. Nice job Cerebral.

This is the barrel aged version of the beer. It pours black with a brown head that is easily brought back. The aroma is dominated by malts, caramel, toffee, I also get vanilla and some booze. The body of this beer is excellent, smooth, little oil, full. Beer has about a thousand things going on, vanilla, some maple, caramel, burnt toast, toffee. Overall this is killer. It is a shame that it is so limited.

This aged a little differently than I expected, but it's still pretty good. You really get clobbered with the booze at first, but as it warms up the other flavors start to come out. I had this side-by-side with the regular Work From Home, and I think I prefer the original more than the barrel-aged, but it was very interesting to compare the flavors. You get more of the bourbon from the barrel here than the coffee and maple that are prevalent in the original version, which is to be expected when it ages for a year. Cerebral is starting to really pump up their barrel-aging program so I'm curious to see what else is released in the future.
