Tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured a dark brown. Nose is sweet malty and boozy. Big mouthful. Comes right at you with some bold flavors. Boozy and sweet with a bunch of roasted malts. Finish is sweet and boozy. Although it may not sound like it, but I liked it.

Tap at RnH. Flimsy, bourbon vanilla aroma, light prune, sherry. Sweet, caramel, fenugreek in the flavor. Lip-smacking sweetness. Not too bad; the barrel character is restrained.
