COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hops faded and the caramelly sweetness came out of the woodwork as this puppy spent a year micro-oxidizing in the barrel, makes the end result almost like a cellared Shugga.

Appearance: Pours an obscured, brown body with a few large bubbles from the pour, but they popped out just as quickly as they came in. Smell: This is one very bourbony nose, singing with earthy, sweet-scented notes of brown sugar, vanilla, coconut creme, oak planks glazed with caramel sauce, and given a teeny tiny pinch of citrus zest. Taste: Plenty of toaster oven-cooked dark caramel squares with a full, resounding sweetness, though there are some encroaching prickly tannic wood qualities. Ah, and there it is -- the warming bourbon, with a big taste of brown sugar to go with the brown sugar already added during the brewing process. Also some vanilla and light coconut. Earthy, citrusy hop character with a fair amount of bitterness remaining. All the while, there’s a strong bourbon presence. Warming, downright intoxicating finish -- like a brown sugar and bourbon cocktail of sorts. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Near still body. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Drinkability: Fairly enjoyable brew that went reasonably well for all the sweetness and bourbon present. Recommended if you ever come across it.

Nice brew. Ripe fruit, sweet, nice lingering mouth feel... I’d hit this all winter. Too bad it was 79 here today. A repeat for sure.

Clear golden brown /amber. Caramel nose. On the fence of sweet and dry. Nice smooth hops bang out first followed n a caramel malt profile. Light airy mouthfeel.
