Poured from the bottle as a transparent ruby with scant head. The aroma is not strong but is roasty sweet with the slightest hint of oak. The taste follows but with the addition of black coffee and then smooth unsweetened chocolate. The bourbon barrel aged character is subtle but comes out more as the beer warms but remains in perfect balance.

Overall, this is one of the best bb aged beers that I've had. The oak, vanilla and bourbon notes remain as components of the taste profile rather than dominating the taste.

Pretty standard for a brown. Maybe a little lighter in flavor than most. Light in carbonation. I would prefer a touch more, but similar to most browns.

12 oz bottle

Pours a brown-cola body with an inch off white head . Decent lacing

Smells of malt and nutty hops. Not very prominent

I taste malts but nothing really stands out.A very slight vanilla sweetness, and a very slight bitter aftertaste

Very slight prickly feel

Overall, Kind of average...
Nothing really stands out about this one. I'm not tasting any oak barreling. It's OK. My nephew sent me a bunch of these 3 months ago as part of an NFC championship wager. At the time I really liked em . now It's more like, "What was I thinking ? " This last one was sitting in my fridge waiting for me to review it. Perhaps it went bad?
