COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged for several months in used, Templeton rye whiskey barrels, this Belgian style ale combine the best of the brewhouse with the best of the cellar. A relatively simple malt bill utilizes the finest two row pilsner malt, with just a touch of crystal and aromatic malt. A generous amount of house-made dark candi beet sugar is added for both color and flavor.

pepsican (1448) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Crushed with blackIPA playing borderlands 2, paired with honey BBQ fritos. Fuck wax. Seriously. Stop waxing beer. Leave that to the people that want to wax their own beer or do it new glares style. Jerks. Dark ruby pour with a small off white head. Thick boozy aroma full of bourbon, caramel, Toffee. Flavor is very dark fruit forward. Figs, tobacco, grapes, basement. Finishes a bit thin, minimal carbonation. Plenty of booze. Definite sourness going on in this. Just a touch of sourness which actually helps the beer. Warming. Pretty nice.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2014
750ml wax top. Pours murky brown with a small off white head. Huge fruit and whiskey to the nose. Some wood and lingering sweetness also. Very smooth drinking and packed with dark fruit, whiskey, caramel, and more. Better as it warmed up. Awesome beer

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark brownish red pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, cocoa powder, hints of slight caramel, toffee, molasses notes, lots of spice, hints of earth. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, spice, lots of dark sugars with caramel and molasses, slight grassy notes with hints of oak, bourbon, and slight vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

Bottle. Copperish amber with a big white head. Aroma and taste are both dominated by the barrel. Some strong fruitiness and prominent malt. Medium mouthfeel. Something is a little off about this one but it's not horrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours reddish orange with a lasting sticky head. Aroma is strong barrel, plums, figs, and roasted malt. Taste is dark fruit, belgian yeast, chewy toast, and strong barrel character. Delicious.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle:   Deep reddish caramel in color, moderate frothy sandy head, fairly nice lacing.   Moderate whiskey nose, slight dark pitted fruit.   Noticeable alcohol.   Very vinous like on the tongue, dark pitted fruit, with whiskey like warmth on the backside.   Seems like a bunch of whiskey infused raisins or something.   Not as big in body as I would have liked.   Lots of dark pitted fruit and alcohol on the finish.   Tangy/tart finish.   Loads of alcohol linger.   Really needs some malty sweetness to balance this one out.   Its decent tho, but HOT!

Shared a 750 of this with friends today. The smell is a bit off putting, but it tastes alright I guess. I don’t get a ton of barrel from this and while I get some sweetness from the whiskey, it’s not very good.
