64oz. growler filled at Party Town for $10. And it's 12%. Pretty sure this is store only. Poured into a GLBC snifter.
Pours deep woody copper. Good sized head on a somewhat rough pour. Good, thick retention and nice lacing. The Brandy is a bit weaker than the wood, somewhat subtle overall but pleasant. Rich woody and earthy aromas. Some rich malts in the back. The Brandy is at a good level, not too strong but flavorful. More of the woody and earthy notes as well as a bit of peat? More of the somewhat sweet, rich malts, aged nicely and blended with the barrels. Body is medium to medium full and smooth as hell. Drinks very very easy for 12%... I'd guess it at maybe 8%? Another tasty brew from BBC.
This, along with there Bourbon Barrel Oatmeal Stout(also new), doesn't seem to have been left in the barrel very long. I think it definitely works with this brew, maybe because the Brandy can be a bit overpowering, but I hope they decide to keep their Bourbon offerings in the barrel a bit longer... if that's is the reason the BA Oatmeal was a bit weak on the Bourbon and light on the wood.
Keep the barrels rollin', BBC!
