Pours dark with a nice head. Snifter. Exceptional from start. Nice rye with a nice hops to a barrel finish. I would definitely have this again. Not a bad price point either.

Smell, look and pour look incredible, but for me the taste didn't quite 'wow' me...still a really great beer, but was hoping for some more oomph.

Picked up a 500 ml bottle from Stone Liberty Station in early September for $14.00. Bottled in May 2014.

Beer poured a dark reddish brown with a nice off white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is vanilla and hints of whiskey.

Taste is a very interesting blend of citrus and pine finishing off with some sweet hints of rye.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly smooth.

Overall this is an experiment that went quite well. I was a bit skeptical when purchasing but the interplay with the hoppy bastard and the barrel is very good!
