Tap at Churchill’s. Will update later. Like reg double DBA, drier with less sweet bourbon. Not funky, just a touch more fruity. Alcohol present, not overpowering. Dunno which I prefer--maybe the reg version.

Marheb (3536) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 13, 2015
(En fût à la brasserie de Buellton): Une base typique American Strong Ale à la Firestone avec une infusion vineuse, doucement acétique et bourrée de tannins rondelets. Des petits fruits rouges se massent en grand nombre à travers ce ’’sipper’’ complexe et singulier,

NikkTwist (2138) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Draft at Good Dog during a Philly Beer Week event. Mostly clear dark copper pour with a thin but lasting layer of off-white foam. Sporadic lace. Shockingly huge syrupy palate. Gummy body explodes with flavor as it dissolves. Astringent and succulent. Gigantic thick complex boozy barrel notes! Caramel. Molasses. Balsamic vinegar. Tons of wood tannins. Lots of dark fruit. Blackberries. Currents. Dark chocolate cherry cordials. Candied orange peels. Raisins. Prunes. Sweet dark vanilla bourbon. Also has enough of a Brett sour bite to bring things up to a new level. Been informed this is really 12.5%. It feels it - but OMG, there is so much flavor per sip that it is hard to express!

Blairgus (3571) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2015
29 May 2015, tap at FW Barrelworks. Light brown, mostly clear, no bubbles. Nose is lightly tart, faint balsamic. Thin body, mildly fizzy. Faintly sour, a tad balsamic, a bit bitter. Interesting. Not the best Flemish red I’ve had.

Emeister84 (1721) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Some funky aromas, lemony, sharply herbal. Hazy light brown with a fairly lasting off-white head. Dry, sour, pretty funky. Light-medium bodied.

[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ FW Barrelworks ][ $2.50 ][ Tasting Snifter ][ 2.22.15 ]
>> Reginald Brett. Deeper orange pour, weak bubbles. Stickier nose, Red IPA like with pine, sap, sawdust, cherry gummybears. Huh. Taste is salty, a tad bland, tea, oak, light tamarind. Firmer acidity as it warms and much more present oak. Develops nicely in the glass into a mix of salty, sweet, and sour. After about 30-45 minutes this one really cleaned up to a refreshing amber sour.

"funks up the normal double double quite nicely. "bretted" for 4 months, this has a subtle barnyard fruityness to it that accompanies the imperial pale ale well."

Gription79 (2716) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Had on draft unfiltered at the brewery. Dry, tannic, fruity yeast aroma, bready, slight tartness/wheat beer like, better than the bottle.
Earlier Rating: 12/7/2013 Total Score: 3.9
Had on draft at Barrelworks. Raisin, toffee, minimal wild charater, slightly vinous, chocolaty. Tasty beer.

Prufrockstar (1647) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft at last drop. God bless Seattle beer week. Aroma is sour tart, caramel, fruit. Murky light amber, khaki head, some retention, no lacing. Taste: lightly tart - nice caramel, fig fruity sweetness with appropriate bitterness at the end. Slick texture, nearly syrupy, full body, light carbonation. Overall: love getting to try any and all barrel aged fsw offerings. This is nice, not quite as intense as some of the offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
