On draft at Hunahpu Day. Called it "Bullit Barrel Aged G’Knight." Pours a red-amber with a white head. Nose is bourbon, oak, vanilla, booze, and big malt. Flavor is similar with bourbon, oak, vanilla, malt, mild toffee, and some bitterness. Light to medium in body and an interesting blend of flavors overall.

Sample at the Brevard tap room. Murky brownish-amber color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, caramel malt and vanilla. The finish is moderately boozy with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
