Chalumeaux (1660) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops cellar aged 2014 brown mahogany with a thin white head. Aromas of honey caramel oak and malt. Taste is mildly sweet up front caramel oak and then turns into a lingering bitter finish which is meant to balance the sweetness but just lingers a bit too long.

2014 750ml bottle from AirForceHops’ cellar. Thanks, Chris! Pours murky medium brown with an off white head. Aroma is barnyard funk, caramel, bourbon, oak. Flavor has a mild funk, caramel, dark fruits. Pine bitterness balances out the sweetness. This is turning sour, and if you have a 2014 bottle, drink it now. nimbleprop (8723) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2016

On draught. Pours jet black with a minimal khaki head. Nose is coffee and bourbon. Taste is moderate bourbon up front with the dark roast malt backbone coming through after. Creamy mouth feel but not cloying. Medium length finish. Very well made and not a typical barley wine. Very nice.
