Taster at Jungle Jim’s Barrel-Aged Beer Bash 2015. I was told that this is Jack & Woodford barrels, 8 months I think is what the Highland rep said. Hazy amber color. Thin ring of bubbly off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Pleasant oaky and vanilla notes work well with the natural caramel malt flavors of the base beer. Some earthiness. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, seems a bit more bitter than I remember regular Gaelic being... Which is fine with me. Light sweet, more dry finish. Fun, tasty stuff to try. Good longer mild whiskey aftertaste, never over-the-top, though.

Draft at Brewvival. Hazy amber color, almost flat. Aroma of vanilla, whiskey, citrus. Taste is more whiskey, overwhelming the beer.

Brewvival Trip Beer 75. Draft at Brewvival, aged in Woodford Reserve Barrels. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retetention. Aroma of citrus, candied fruits, whisky and herbal hops. The taste is wood, herbal notes, caramel and citrus. Medium bodied. Dominated by the wood.

Suttree (5640) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Sampled at 2012 Knoxville Brewfest. Smells great, of course, like most bourbon barrel aged beers. Bourbon seems to overwhelm a lot of the rest of the beer, though. OK, I suppose, but not really my thing.
