3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber color with thin head. This beer is just confusing to me. The flavors donít mix at all in my opinion. There are fruits, wood, oak, bitterness, and heat that all seem to be doing a rumble royal in my mouth. I feel the same about the other 2.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Amber pour with a small white head. Woody, fruity aroma with earth and spice. Citrusy, woody, spice and boozy flavor. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours amber with reddish hues and a small tan head. Well-apparent caramel, subtle plum, toffee, and wood on the nose. Swashing lace on my snifter. The flavor has loads of astringent alcohol notes, grains, subtle fruits like banana, cranberry, more barrel, Booze, booze, and more booze. BOOZE! Medium/high carbonation and full body. Definitely a brew to save for the end of the night. Donít try this before dinner like I did! I can feel myyy sensesss dulliii..*^*!&@

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to rbrazell! Pours a translucent golden brown with thin ring of off-white head that doesnít really lace. Aroma is sweet vanilla, light earthiness, spice. Taste falls flat of the other two, but all the notes are still there. Least favorite.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
651mL thanks to BSchnab! Pours a clear, deep orange. Thicker yellowish foam. Good, webby lacing. Nose is detergent volatile moving to candied orange, buttery biscuit. Taste is coconut oil up front but then harshly woody, dry, and tannic. Biting and near anesthetic like having just brushed my teeth. Abrasive, tannic body. Wood spirals were probably a bad idea.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle dated may 30 12. Pour has a brown color and a thick layer of tan head that fell away to some pillows floating about on the surface. Aroma has sweet sticky malts, oak, toffee, hints of dark fruit, and a bit of heat. Mouth feel is full with heavy coating and decent carbonation for a barrel aged beer. Flavor is even more rich, vanilla, oak, dark brown sugar, heavy malts, fermented dark fruit, and a hint of cherry only because the label told me to look for it. It is rich and full and the barrel mixes in quite well. Reminds me of Big Sound that I quite liked as well!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper amber pour, off white head. Fruit cocktail, green oak, spicy hops, brown sugar, alcohol, caramel. My least favorite of the 3.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
on tap at New World Brewery. aroma was quite hoppy and boozy, flavor was similar. the alcohol was quite hot and way up front, stomping on pretty much the rest of the flavor, of which i got a little bit of wood and piney resin, almost like drinking cough syrup. maybe the other 2 that are BA arent as booze heavy as this one.
