Bottle 220 of 502 of the 2012 batch. Pours a hazy dark amber, with a light tan head. Aroma of oak, caramel, and malt. Taste is rich and smooth, with good oaken notes. I am quite happy with this fine brew. Thumbs way up!

750ml cork+cage bought from brewpub. #363 of 502. Dark copper brown, tight bubbly head. Huge bourbon aroma, this is a great BA ale. Mild brown base beer with crisp hops for style. Mollasses, banana bread, light cinnamon. Sweet mild, lower alc. Lovely that it is a lighter body for a big bourbon ale. awesome, heavy barrel aging. Really strong, tasty and fun.

Thanks to Matt for this one! Murky brown, small tan head. Lots of whiskey on the nose, sitting over molasses, banana bread, dark fruits, and mild baking spices. The barrels did this one good. Flavor follows. Really nice effort, and a good use of whiskey barrels.
