Reddish-copper body; thin yet lasting head; some rings of foam along the glass. Sweet, fruity aroma interlaced with notes of leather, roasted nuts and hints of bourbon. Sweet, fruity flavor; dates and dried raisins; bitter and boozy. Warm, heavy body; sweet and dry elements vie with each other yet ultimately balance things out.

An all-around, very fine barrel-aged heavy ale. There are enough sweet, almost tart esters to tame the boozy, woody elements. A nice find...

2014 vintage.

Good beer. Barrel covers up most of the base beer. What little I can taste seems to be sort of a blend of a wee heavy and an old ale. Wish the base beer was a little more prominent. The barrel character refined but slightly rigid.
