COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name "Devilís Heart of Gold" comes from what they call the "Devilís Cut". When a bourbon ages in a barrel, a portion of the bourbon evaporates - this is called the "Angelís share". Another portion of the bourbon gets absorbed into the new oak barrel - this is called the "Devilís cut". Therefore, the Heart of Gold beer aging in the barrel starts to absorb back some of the Devilís Cut and hence the name "Devilís Heart of Gold". We took our Heart of Gold and aged it in a Knob Creek 9-year old barrel from our friends at The Wine and Cheese Place in October 2011. The beer rested in these barrels for 7 months. 204 bottles will be released exclusively at The Wine and Cheese Place.

From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickeyís 30th birthday bash on November 05. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a darker brown with a thin khaki colored head and no lace as it disappears. The aroma is pretty damn good. Lots of caramel malts, lots of dark fruit, and a while pile of alcohol. There is a light vanilla and a good oak, but the whiskey just controls this one. The flavor is much of the same. The toffee and caramel are great, the dark fruits balance just enough, and the oak offers a light char, but the alcohol drowns that out on the finish. The mouth feel is great. Itís thick and chewy with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and boozy finish. This needs a little less influence from the whiskey to be spectacular.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate caramel,tl toffee, fruit, vanilla, bourbon, and a hint of maple syrup. Itís a slightly hazy amber with a small beige head. The flavor starts with moderate caramel, toffee, and light fruit. The finish has light maple syrup, aged hops, oak, and bourbon. Itís medium-full bodied with light-moderate and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, itís tasty, but the sweetness wears in me a little.
