3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a murky dark orange/red color with no head at all. Tons of alcohol on the nose, good bit of oak and vanilla, dark fruits (cherry, fig), sweet ripe banana, and a touch of yeast. Pretty prominent bourbon taste (although not overbearing) up front, a bit of oak and caramel, sweet syrupy notes, some ripe fruit, and vanilla. It’s good, and it has more going on than most other barrel aged beers, but it feels like it’s missing something.

It pours brown with some clouding. The head doesn’t last very long. It has aromas of bread, plums, spices, alcohol and whiskey. The malt is very dominant in initial flavors with toast, a rich taste, caramel, alcohol, whisky elements, plums, and a bit of vanilla. The flavors work well together as part of the complexity of this particular brew. It feels moderate on the heavy side with a fair amount of alcohol warming. It a complex bitter-sweet finish.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a bottle,
I was confused how this beer was aged, the label on the bottle reads this beer was aged in Whiskey Barrels, the Commercial DeScription read aged in Bourbon Barrels, and the Weyerbacher website reads the beer was aged in Bourbon Barrels, not sure what is right…
this ale had a opaque dark brown-red pour and gave a small off-white head of bubbles that quickly receded to a small ring and left a few little islands of bubbles,
the nose had aromas of prune and date dark fruit, toasted bread, bread-malt sweetness and dark fruit sweetness that resembled dates, a little vanilla and bourbon liquor, the dark fruit and brown sugar sweetness was out front,
the flavors were dark fruit with toasted bread, bourbon liquor, a little vanilla, and lots dark fruit and bread sweetness with a pepper like spice hit,
the finish had a pronounced alcohol spice bite with a little malt trailing,
the mouth feel was almost medium and felt a little flat, it was a bit syrupy on the lips, it was not creamy, it had little to soft carbonation,
the nose had a good dark fruit but the sweetness was a bit big and sort of got in the way of enjoying the drink, the flavor was a simple dark fruit and a big punch of a spice bite that got in the way of enjoying the drink, the alcohol was a bit much, I would not recommend.
