3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Big Barrel Tarrarel - Pours hazy rosy amber with a thin off-white ring of head. Nose is malt vinegar, a bready base, and a light fruitiness. Taste is the same--a little more whiskey comes through. Thereís some fruity sweetness and some mild balsamic vinegar tartness. Medium-bodied and nicely carbonated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Vintage for their pre-GTMW party, pours a dark brown with almost an orange tint and a nice off white head, the aroma has a lot of whiskey but it isnít over powering like some of their other stuff, the flavor has a good amount of sweetness on the front end with a sour and funky finish of fruit and whiskey mixing together, the oak really comes through as well. This is by far the best BA beer I have had at Vintage thus far, well done.
