RedBeard hooked this one up... Weird across the board, big WestCo hoppiness is present with a good traditional wee heavy maltiness and then the whole thing is smacked around by a very heavy barrel presence.. Very unique, but doesn’t exactly seem to jive. Thanks Steve, I would have never tried for this one.

Chub and Gub blended. Not sure how I feel about this one. The huge hops of the gubna fight with the malt and sweetness of the chub. It’s an interesting battle. The malt dominates the aroma while the bitter bite of gubna comes out in the finish.
