Reddish brown color, moderate to small head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is strong whiskey barrel with some smoke, lesser notes of darker fruit and sugar. The barrel flavor dominates and overwhelms the beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by Ferris. Murky amber brown, nearly still, with no head formation whatsoever. Whiskey and brothy caramel, and something more that is hard to pin down for me. Sweet whiskey and raw oak, dry woody tannins in the finish. Kind of dirty. I started off liking this better than batch #12, but ended up liking it less.
