A beautiful pour - almost black, with a dark brown head. The barrel aging comes out very strongly in the aroma and provides a nice contrast to the tartness in the taste. I enjoyed this one enough to try and scavenge a growler to take home, but they were unfortunately out of growler tickets!
Barrel Aged Weed 2013. 10 ounce pour at the brewpub. Dark pour. Moderate head. The contributions for the red wine barrel are more pronounced here. I prefer the regular Czar Jack - but this is a decent variation. Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2013
On tap at town hall. Black with very deep brown head, looks damn near perfect. Aroma is a bit of bourbon, some roast, and stong notes of tart red fruit. Taste is complicated, I hated the first sip, but it grew on me. The tart red fruit is very strong, a little hint of bourbon in the finish with a big malt backbone. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Not sure what I think about this, its very tart, almost too tart for it just to be from wine barrel ageing. It tasted a lot like last year’s infected Czar Jack, and from what I understand its the same batch. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draft at Town Hall Barrel Aged Week 2013. Pours a jet black color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity, a little roasty, some red wine. A little heavy on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, lots of red wine, with a soft roasty finish. My least favorite of the three tonight.
