Stovepipe can thanks to Steve. pours out a amber brown color topped with a sand head. Nose is bourbon barrel big malts pit fruit and a pine hop. Taste is more of the heavy malts some pit fruit and plenty of the barrel goodness.

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.
