3.76/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a solid brown. good clarity. not much of a tan head that fades fairly quickly

Smell: strong bourbon smell. strong alcohol. oaky and vanilla qualities.

Taste: starts off with a bourbon taste that inlcudes a barrel character and some vanilla. alcohol permeates throughout this. slight funkiness from the ginger in the background.

Mouthfeel: seems very heavy. not sticky. great heavy feel

Overall: a tasty and interesting bourbon barrel beer.
