This beer has been on my list of planned brews for a long time but I've never gotten around to brewing it.... I just found out this morning that a buddy of mine who works for a spirits distributor has a 5 gallon whiskey-aged oak barrel that he's going to give me... I'm thinking I might brew this up and dry-hop it in the barrel... Do those of you who have made this think the whiskey and oak will be too much for this beer? I'm expecting more of the whiskey to come through than the oak, and I only plan to hold it in the barrel for a week or so.

I think it might be just fine - if you like whiskey flavor. The hop presence is strong enough that it should not get overpowered. Do it and let us know how it turned out, man!

Anyone brew this lately? I have the yeast on the stirplate right now, hopefully ready for a Sunday brew!

I brewed this about 6 months ago with a few hop changes. Fantastic. Still my favorite brew.

I do believe that beer in the picture was about 6 weeks old (3 week ferment + 3 week bottle carb). The head on the beer was definitely very heavy and stuck around a long time.

Chocolate malt will change the taste considerably. Will be interested to see how it turns out.
