Big, bold, black and barrel aged. A lengthy conditioning period in bourbon barrels creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla and oak. OG 23.5 Plato. March release.

The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Thanks to Leighton for this one. Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate starts smooth, turns slightly crisp. Fresh tasting mellow dark malts. Nice touch of mellow barrelling and light fruity bourbon. Whisper of dark chocolate. Light minerally finish. Super mellow and drinkable.

Tasting at Matt’s
Black color with large beige head. A good beer, but compared to the un-barreled version this one is less characteristic, it loses the bread character that makes the base beer great, it adds some vanilla and liquorice.
