Bottle thanks to a generous trade. Pours a near clear dark brown with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains with notes of molasses with backing oak notes. Flavor is sweet with sweet grains, light fruit, molasses and a bit of a metallic note.

750ml bottle. Thanks to Derek for sharing... Pours a deeper mahogony toffee black hue and topped with a creamy light beige head... Aroma. phenolic overtones with semi-tart dark fruits followed up by a semi-spiced caramel malt backbone probably from the barrel. Some vanilla tannins thrown in for good measure. odd phenolic character that adds a mild infected note ... Flavors are somewhat better but still tainted with semi-tart and metallic dark fruit. Earthy bitterness throughout with the metallic note existing through. Lighter bodied and fluffy.

Tap @ Breakside... Poured deep, ruby-red with a beige head. Nose contained oak and dark fruits. Thick palate, a but boozy with smoke, oak, charred wood, cherries, prunes, and big malt sweetness that countered the intense bitterness.

Called Old Woody by the restaurant. Can we get this changed to that. Barrel aged and with the character of the barrel in the aroma. Full bodied with a minor alcohol note. Malty note.
