Poured a black body with two-finger head and a roasted malt aroma with strong boozy notes and bits of sweetness. Smooth beer thanks to the barrel aging/wood aspect but there are times when the booze overpowers and at times the alcohol is hot on the backend. Fuller bodied beer that has some sweetness and enjoyable beer but it's slightly off balance.

This is a great unique local brew. Malty with hints of whiskey. Refreshing this time of year.

A-Pours dark brown. Light does penetrate most of the beer's body. Head is a spoonful of tan fluff.

S-The whiskey notes are evident right away. Oak and a dollop of vanilla as well. Brown malt with roast.

T-Whiskey is well proportioned. It's probably the most noticeable aspect of the flavor. Roast and some light chocolate flavor. Vanilla. Oak.

M-Feels fuller than the ABV would suggest. It's creamy. More booze than there should be.

O-A non-Imperial barrel aged beer that maintains enough whiskey flavor to keep my interest. It has it's flaws but it's a tasty beer overall.
