murked up golden brown like toast from, well, a toaster. golden honey color, beauty. valencia & booze nose. the strong barrel notes dominate the nose and a large portion of the flavor. but damnit it works in the flavor. the lemon hop and sweet hop compliment. too many flawed impy’s and other big beers or thrown in a barrel to hide the errors, but not here. lemongrass mixes well with the oak. alcohol burns with a touch of something like corriander.this is a superb example of good aging. while i wouldn’t want this every night i certainly could enjoythe white lightning corner store candy flavor more than occasionally.( i am amazed i was able to read these notes, i have horrible hand writing and it gets worse with alcohol) 5 3 7 4 16

Sampler at RBD. Light amber color beer.Mix of citrus and whiskey on the nose. Stranahan’s whiskey is fantastic, but when that flavor is mixed with an IPA, it is odd. The bartender told me it was his favorite, I couldn’t agree.

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Draft at RB-Denver. Hazy beer, dark orange with a thin fizzle hanging on for dear life. The aroma definitely hints at whiskey, but is still mostly driven by some citrusy hops. But on the drink, the whiskey is in command, but not too overwhelmingly, riding high on a fairly sweet brew. (#3334, 2/21/2008)
