For the love of all that is good in this world, this is why I drink beer. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet, boozy tart aroma. Tastes of boozy bourbon, something tart, and a yeasty, malty BALANCED goodness. The barrels and wood are prominent but just enough, the alcohol is right there but perfectly placed, the tart fruity element is blending everything together in a beautiful orchestrated madness. One of my all time favorites with depth and complexity to contemplate for a long time.

At dominion wine and beer poured from a bottle it is a amber color with a slight head. The aroma is boozy and caramel. The taste is sweet with a strong bourbon flavor

Natai (120) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a deep mahogany with only a slight head - typical for a higher ABV brew such as this. A rich aroma of caramel and dark fruit, with hints of a fruity wine. Smooth a balanced on the palate, with a freshness that belies the hints of whiskey. Not quite as complex as it could be, but excellent nonetheless.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a nice foamy head. Aroma of molasses and residual sugar offset by some vinous notes and light vanilla whiskey notes. Taste is a mix of molasses and residual sugar notes with some dry fruits notes with some light vinous notes and light vanilla and whiskey notes. Body is lighter then I would have expected for the style with light warming alcohol notes. Interesting experiment but needs a fuller body and I would drop the wine barrels as well and concentrate on the whiskey barrels which are a better match for the base beer.
