Smuttynose Really Old Brown Dog (Julio’s Whiskey Barrel Aged)

Smutty Julio’s: 4.5 – A little over a month ago we had a slightly different version of this, with the addition of being Bourbon Barrel Aged and Vanilla & Cinnamon. While that was sadly lacklustre it was thankfully not overly sweet. A feat that is sort of accomplished here. Listen, this is not a syrup sugar bomb, but despite the layers of complexity this has it’s just too much, for not enough enjoyment. Yes it has depth, but those BBA characteristics almost get in the way of that somehow, and overall you get a beer that is at times too sweet, and other times a bit harsh. We know that a BBA can be done, and done well, but this isn’t it.

Price Average: $?? – possibly not available
