Split the last bottle over at Spuyten last night with PilsnerPeter. Thanks Peter for arranging this. I actually liked this beer quite a bit. Pours a nice slightly hazed golden with a nice fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma is vanilla, oaky woodiness, toasted malts, bready dough, light to moderate bourbon- more straight oak mixed with Belgian yeasty phenols- definitely no diacetyl in our bottle. Flavor is doughy phenolic, light fruity esters, toasted malts, fresh, woody bourbon, vanilla, and light char- smooth and full mouth feel that dries out a bit in the end. I love Local 1 and the bourbon barrel was very subtle so I really dug this beer.
