8 oz tap pour into an over-sized snifter at Hinterland in the Third Ward, Milwaukee, WI.
A - Pours a dark and hazy amber brown color with a moderate pile of cream head. Low retention leads to a ring of foam that stays behind with no lace.
S - Smooth bourbon oak woodiness is incredibly reminiscent of a bourbon barrel stout. Vanilla blends well with a dark caramel malt sweetness and smooth candi sugar. Hops fall to the background with subtlety with nice juicy citrus fruit.
T - Smooth bourbon oak and vanilla blends well with sweet caramel malts and a surprisingly hoppy profile based on the nose. It's a big beer with a nice toasted malt, bitter hop, and subtle non-boozy barrel flavor.
M - Medium-full bodied and smooth with a lingering slow bitterness that works very well with the sweet malts and a lightly dry finish.
D - A shocking lack of alcohol/ booziness in this beer makes it dangerously easy to drink for a double IPA. It's too bad it's almost gone for a year! Bring it out in bottles!

Stopped in the brew pub tonight on a reccomendation from my #1 beer ninja BeerFMAndy. A couple epic pork tacos and an outstanding beer later I'm glad I listened.
Served in an oversized snifter the beer is dark chestnut brown with about a finger of khaki head. A small soapie lace ring remains around the top of the beer.
The aroma is spectacular. Buttery caramel malt and bourbon greet you at first. Wood and sweet tarts mix with cut grass a hint of almonds and citrus hops in the finish. I spent a solid five minutes smelling this one. The people at the bar were starting to talk at this point.
The flavor is a touch less powerful than the nose but still great. Bourbon and loads of caramel malt. Earthy grass and citrus are picked up as well. Wet straw and just a hint of heat linger in the finish.
Medium to full creamy body. Semi dry finish. Light carbonation.
Overall a superb barrel aged DIPA. As drinkable as a barrel aged DIPA can get. Damn glad I got a chance to enjoy this one. Since once it's gone it won't be back for a year. Thanks so much to Andy for giving me the heads up.
