AdamChandler (4004) – Enfield, New Hampshire, USA – DEC 26, 2015
500ML in a trade
A – Looks like a blood red purple reddish brown ale with a 1 finger pinkish head.
S – Smells great. Lots of berry aroma, a faint barrel aroma and almost no whiskey
T – Well, in the taste, the whiskey is much more pronounced. Bramble out the wazoooooo. Juicy, bright, fruity. There is some shoe-polish here which is really unfortunate.
M – good dense mouthfeel but thins out at the finish
O – This was a good beer but the whiskey barrel actually took away from that.
