Whisky Barrel Aged Quinte55ence

Better known as “The Answer”, this is the Barrel Aged version of Quinte55ence. Crawford was kind enough to give me a bottle of this (along with the Quinte55ence original and a couple of Cloud 9’s). I shared these with the boys at the Brick Store.
Pour is identical to the Quinte55ence – no surprise there, and equally unsurprising is the aroma which gives the smoky notes from the barrel.
I need to put a disclaimer right up front here, I am just not that interested in Barrel aged beers. They really aren’t to my liking very much.
Much prefer the Quinte55ence it its original form, as the added liquor character seems to confuse the beer for me. Coupled with the original edginess and Barleywine character of the Quinte55ence, this becomes a bit too much for me to handle.
Certainly still a quality brew, and if you are interested in this “type” of creation I am sure you’ll be delighted – just not really my cup of tea.
