Tons of bourbon on the nose wood a little caramel but barrel overwhelmed this one. Pours amber thin head. FlAvors of big bourbon light malty base beer hint of hops and wood. Thinner out by barrel. Like bourbon seltzer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at uber. Pours a murky dark amber with a scant tan head. Big sweet vanilla and caramel nose with tons of bourbon. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet cookieish mid palate with tons of vanilla and caramel wrapping into a manhattanesque bourbony finish. Pleasant and drinkable but thank goodness only six four. Would be super cloying if bigger.
