Shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!
The beer is copper hued and somewhat clear with a small tan cap. Aromas of bread, oak, sweet malt, vanilla, booze. Huge flavor. A huge wave of oak carries over from the aroma to flavor, with additional flavors of wet wood, earth, vanilla, malt. A potent offering. While this is indeed quite tasty, it’s best enjoyed in small servings.

RBAG. Brown pour. Bigtime bourbon aromas, lots of oak. Flavour is bourbon, very boozy and warming, but really nice sipping stuff. I think this bottle was 2013

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a very hazy orange color witha s mall head of white bubbles. There is light bit of vinnegar in the nose and a touch of citrus. This is only lightly tart once tasted but very oxidized, the only pleasant barrel flavor I’m really getting from this is vanilla. It is sweet and sticky and texture and overall a pretty big disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. 12oz bottle. Ratebeer version. Pour towards the end. Totally cloudy amber brown color. Thin ring off-white head, dots of ropes of lace. Very interesting aroma. Malty flavor, oxidization. Medium plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, some bitter, dry finish. Kind of like a desert wine in the flavor. Some light heat on the end. Solid, interesting stuff to try, but my guess is that it’s seen better days. 6/4/6/4/13
