Green wax bottle traded a few months ago. Pour has a nutty brown color and a coating of tan head that retained a good ring for a barreled beer. Aroma has rich bourbon, oak, vanilla, earthy malts, brown sugar, and a touch of sweetness. Mouth feel is medium heavy and there is average carbonation. Flavor shows that there is plenty of big malts, roast, sweet bourbon, oak, dark fruit, raisins, plenty of sweetness, and a lingering finish.

Something about this one didnít agree with me. MAripan and maraschino cherries dominate the smell. Flavor is sweet, boozy, but ultimately limp.

Iím not sure who was the one who shared this at Blue Lobster, but big thanks! Nose is a deep, well-integrated bourbon presence alongside some sweet caramel. Light oak and vanilla. Flavor is bourbon forward with good backing sweetness and oak. Full body and fairly viscous. No real booze. Quite nice.

Never a been a huge fan of regular Big Sound but lets see what a barrel does .. . deep tan maroon, touch murky .. . mild foam .. . chocolate tar, boozy chocolate, and molasses whiskey .. . quick finish .. . complex but no body or character- the wax was nice though .. . . Iíve got a pilotís license. Do I go on about it? No, I donít.
