    Pappy barrel-aged beer...

    I was lucky enough to try some Pappy Van Winkle barrel-aged Total Eclipse Stout from Foothills Brewing at the Charleston Brewvival yesterday. I'm a huge fan of barrel-aged beer and I have to say, this was head and shoulder over anything I've ever tried. TONS of bourbon flavor coming through, the truest melding of beer and bourbon I've ever tasted. Also of note I tried Terrapin's Dugout (their amazing Wake-and-Bake, Barrel Aged) and Rogue's John John Dead Guy (Dead Guy ale aged in Dead Guy Whiskey barrels). The Terrapin was great but really didn't have any noticable whiskey flavor (sad since I love the regular Wake-and-bake so much) and the John John was really flat and one-dimensional to me (again, really dissapointed, usually Rogue can do no wrong). All in all it was an amazing day, really hope they do it again next year and maybe I can see some of you there
