Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with bubbly off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big barrel notes over a hint of toasty nut and dark malts. Taste follows, barrel is huge, impressive for a small abv beer. Balance is a little off, body is a little thin, but cool stuff, keeping the barrel aged there for people who don’t want high alcohol.

sample at the brewery, tough to balance all this sweetness in this one. Nuts, molasses, and vanilla dominate aroma, taste, and finish. charule (2298) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2016

Draft. Specifically noted as the 2016 vintage, and as "Bourbon Barrel Aged." Pours deep brown with a beige head. Nutty malts and chocolate sweet base, lighter bourbon barrel presence, some mild husky notes, and a nice quick finish. Not a ton of booze at all; very easy drinking.
