4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle through trade huge thanks to AZBennett! Corked and caged 2013 expedition. Pour has a brown color with nice ruby highlights and a thin coating of tan head that fell to a ring on the glass. Aroma has the promised whiskey barrels done so nicely! Vanilla, oak, toasted custard, brown sugar, juicy wood, caramel, and the distinct malts of Bigfoot. I love that the base beer is there full force but the barrels take it to another level. Mouth feel is medium with good coating and enough carbonation but dialed back a bit from the regular. Flavor brings on the aged malted flavors, light sweet bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruit touches, and a bit of hops still lingers. I wish this was widely available it is so enjoyable, it takes a classic favorite to another level while still maintaining what was so good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Pale amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of fruitcake, bourbon, and ginger. Warming in the mouth with elements of cake batter, fig, whisky, and earth. Medium bodied with a fairly boozy finish. A solid barleywine, but I much prefer the non-barrel aged version.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
March 9, 2013 via a big boy bottle. Reddish brown pour with nice head that left a thin amount for a while. Aroma was sweet, malty, hoppy and whiskey in aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma. Nice sweet caramel malt up front, then a mild hoppy bitterness and a nice woody and whiskey finish. Maybe even a touch of smoke in the aftertaste. This is very smooth and a nice full body. Glad I got a couple bottles of this.

Bottle shared by portableparty! Clear brown pour, little carbonation and bourbony sweet aroma. Flavor is hoppy, caramelly booze, oaky and a little sweet. Nicely done. A perfect example of an already great base beer made a little better by some barrel aging.
