22oz bottles acquired in trade with Larry Pitonka. Tasted side by side with the Barrel Aged version so notes will reflect the side by side tasting. Both versions poured a medium mahogany with a small sized off white head. The BA version was cloudy with the regular version being clear. They both had an earthy, peaty and caramel aroma (stronger in the BA) with the BA also possesing the expected aromas of vanilla, wood, and also a smokiness. The overall aromas of the regular were on the softer and subtle side. They both shared tastes of nuts, caramel, and earthiness. The BA also had wood, vanilla, smoke, and citrus. Overall the BA was more complex and enjoyable.

Poured a hazy reddish brown color with a thin, light tan head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, oak, marshmallow, caramel malts, and light smoke, with a bit of wood as well. Taste of nuts, smoke, vanilla, oak, roasted malts, sweet toffee, and light alcohol as well in the finish.

Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle from Uber Tavern. Body is a nice dark amber with brown and a nice off white head. Aroma is very malty, with a light hint of alcohol, a slight nuttiness, and earthy. Taste is vanilla, oak, malt, alcohol, with light caramel. One of the better oak aged beers. Bravo!

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Deep copper mahogany tone with a mild head. Oaky, vanilla, bourbon robustness makes this a nice desert brew. Share with a friend because this one is special.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin tan head. Nice bourbon oaky and sweet caramel malty aroma has some vanilla and mild peat. Body starts with sweet peaty caramel toffee well balanced with a nice bourbon oaky complexity toward a dry bittersweet finish. A unique and well-brewed beer.
