In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, alcohol warmth, bourbon barrel notes, woody notes, light coconut, very nice and smooth. Bottle at CNY Brewfest 2016.

Pours a very dark brown color with off-white head. Raisins, dark fruit, bourbon, and some oak on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little heat from the bourbon.

This was a good beer with lots of earthy notes ,yeast and barnyard , it reminded me of when I was a kid and walked into the chicken coop with the smell of hay , kind of like light barnyard smell, "not bad " in any way just original. I enjoy beers for what they are and the flavors they bring.

Corked bottle. 2010. Dark brown color with a reddish haze. Oak, bourbon and confit cherry in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with hint of bourbon and dreid cherry. Other dried fruits. Some oak. Powerful and warming.

Dark brown with light head. Tastes almost like a barleywine but without the sour taste at the end. Instead its bitter in a good way.

This is very cool beer you just don’t see a beer like this aged in bourbon barrels. Aroma is rich,wood,yeast,bourbon,malt. A very full flavored beer including flavors of caramel,bourbon,wood,vanilla and cherries. Wish they had made more.

NOTF 2010. Deep amber pour. The nose is loaded with oak and bourbon. Lots of caramel and vanilla over a heavy rich sweetness. The base beer seems to be completely dominated by the barrel here. Sweet toffee and a rich unctuous chewiness. It’s pretty nice in spite of the lack of harmony.

This seemed to be a great beer to barrel age. Some of the fruit still shined through. Lots of wood and bourbon. Flavor had a hint of sour with vanilla and cinnamon, a bit like pie and finished with smooth and sweet bourbon.
