On draft at CCB. This was so close to being an amazing beer for me. Beautiful barrel aging that artfully integrated the brew and the barrel with just the right amount of sweetness and very little heat. The lime came through just a touch to add in some nice tartness and played well with the barrel. However, the cumin was much too overpowering for me. This might be due in part to how much I cook with cumin and associate it with savory foods. But it just hijacked the beer for me. Make this without the cumin and I would absolutely love this beer.
