Woody brown color with small tan head. Oaky, caramel, purple fruit aroma. Medium full body. Some alcohol, minimal carbonation. Very sweet, fruity, boozy, some wood. Flavors are good but a little too sweet and medicinal.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Itís heavy handed, it plays all itís cards right up front. People who donít love bourbon barrel aging might get tired of it before the bottle is empty, but Iím a sucker for oak. This beer pours medium brown with average head and carbonation. The aroma is vanilla, bananas, liquor, warm malt, and, of course, oak. Thatís the flavor, too. Nothing subtle and not really complex. Having said that, I enjoyed every predictable drop.

Overall bottled on 4/20/15 drank on 4/20/16. There is no head on this beer at all. Maybe a slight presence of alcohol but it has mellowed out. Nice warmth down the throat. Hints of dark fruits and medium to heavy sweetness. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours brown with some clouding. The head doesnít 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.

Bottle. It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of grapes, raisins, oak, bread, malts and some toffee. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, dark fruits, vanilla with oak and booziness. Very tasty.
