Iron Hill - North Wales. A 2012 World Beer Cup competition bottle, an RIS aged in bourbon barrels.

Apparently is getting a Sep 15th release. Thanks to stawn for this interesting tick! Tulip glass.

A: Pours black with a half finger of medium brown head. The head recedes within a minute to a healthy ring. A few lonely streaks of lace.

S: In-your-face bourbon, vanilla, coconut, sweet cream, and some faint roasty malt and milk chocolate.

T: Kind of a tannic, slightly bitter, toasted oak flavor that is a bit off. Maybe overoaked, it doesn't quite come together as well as it could. A little of the RIS, residual sugar, and alcohol shows through.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: A big, barrel-forward RIS, could be a bit better integrated.
