4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle, Andersons, $11.99 or $12.99. Had the non-barrel-aged 22 oz last night. Same unfiltered murky dark copper pour; dissipates into a small ring and a very light, sparse covering. -Much- more notable oak and vanilla and wood than the non-BA version, and surprisingly boozier too. Probably more dark fruit (prune?) than the non-BA. This was a fun beer to taste test because against the non-BA. With the non-BA at about 8 bucks I’d like to see the BA version at a little less of a markup, but this is really, really good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle acquired via trade with Homer321! Hazy burnt tangerine pour with some scarlet, garnet, and ruby red hues. A solid eggshell cap and a significant number of chunks floating around. Moderate barrel shown in the nose with some oak, vanilla, bourbon, and caramel prominent. Flavor is balanced between the barrel and base beer also. Vanilla, wood, toffee, caramel, molasses, and even some maple. Medium mouthfeel. Surprised how integrated the barrel is despite its lower ABV.
