on cask at brewpub. pours brown with a thick khaki head that leaves some lacing. Has a bourbon sweetness on the nose. has a bit of bourbon on the tongue. finishes clean but the mouthfeel is a bit thin. It’s solid but I’d agree that perhaps it wasn’t the best style for barrel aging.

Served on cask at the Brewpub into a 8oz. pint. This one is really called "Drunk Puppy" A - Pours murky brown with a thick pillow of one and a half finger tall tan head leaving light lacing down the glass. S - Smell was a bit muted at first but it got a little better as it warmed up. Hints of nuts, vanilla, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and only a touch of warm bourbon. T - Starts off with a good bit of cloying sweetness with hints of chocolate, vanilla, toffee, and caramel. Once the sweetness dies down a bit you start to detect hints of roasted nuts, coffee grounds, and the warm bourbon. The finish is a mix of dry wood tannins and more sweetness, lingering for some time. I was expecting a bit more bourbon flavor in this one. M - Medium-Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Nice smooth feel initially slowly becoming very thin toward the end. Finish is a mix of dryness and sweetness. O - While this one was still good I was really expecting more out of it. The base flavors were a bit muddled and the bourbon flavors weren’t very strong. I would say this is the worst of the three to date.

Pours a slightly hazy darkish brown with a small wispy off-white head that faded to a thin ring.  The nose is just lightly bourbony with some  nice chocolate and light roast notes. The booziness is well kept in check, surprised this was in for 6 mo. The flavor is also pleasantly low on the bourbon, which could easily be overdone on such a light beer.  Chocolate, roast, light graininess, some nice vanilla and woody notes on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery with minimal carb due to the cask condition. Overall it’s nice, but I’m not real sure that the mudpuppy was a great choice for barrel aging.
