From Notes 9/21/12:

Served from a firkin into a pint glass at The San Antonio Flying Saucer.

A: Dark reddish-brown. Hazy, with a miniscule head that fades instantly.

S: Whiskey and oak from the barrel are strongest. Toffee, caramel, grassy hops are in the background from the base beer.

T: Sweet whiskey and oak are dominant. Base beer is subdued. Toffee and hops are in the finish with a lingering dryness from the oak.

M: Thick and creamy with lower carbonation than the original gravel road.

O: Really glad I sought this one out. The barrel treatment along with the firkin really enhanced the base beer into a nice treat.
