RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Great bourbon barrel aroma. Hints of smoke and caramel. Fairly dry, perhaps a bit more that the regular Big Sound. Nicely balanced, the barrel doesn’t take over the flavor entirely.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Sampled at the January ’10 Metro Detroit tasting. Thanks to northernbrews again! Poured a very murky deep brown with a brown head. Aroma was quite boozy with some underlying dark grains and vanilla. Flavor was boozy as well with dark grains and some cereal notes. The beer was nice and slick on the tongue.
