Super astringent when cold, the other notes came out as it warmed, though. At that point it became just another boozy strong ale.

This has got some horsepower, though you wouldn’t know it as it’s not boozy. Just rich, barrel aged goodnessEarned the American Craft Beer Week (2022) badge! Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 52) badge! Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 89) badge!
I’m a big bourbon fan but I think this one is a little unbalanced with too much barrel. The barrel masks the underlying complexity of the dark ale. Still a great beer but would be better with slightly less barrel.
