Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest... Poured near black with a frothy, light khaki head. Whiskey notes and a good roastiness. A little thin with some acidity. Nutty, malty, pressed coffee and oak characters. Aroma was much better than the flavor. The barrel character seemed to have been lost more in the flavor.
