Not too much barrel. For sure a solid beer. Again maybe not the style most suitable for barrel aging.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a dark brown with an off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, floral, wood, and a trace of bourbon. Tastes of wood, vanilla, chocolate, some earth, light bourbon, and some dark fruits. Sammy (12195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Not quite a Baltic, very significant chocolate and significant roast. Some hop in finish. A tad thin but very good drinkability. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Solid brew as are most of this crooked line. Barrel faint at first especially in the nose but it opens up well. Only fault is a little prickliness and slight overcarbonation. Dark fruits, roasted malt and barrel are well balanced and tasty. Nothing is really quite a 9, but there are a couple 8.5’s so there ya go." madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2013
