Has anyone tried one of BTP's new BA releases Johns Dark Secret
? It tasted off to me and was wondering what others thought. For a beer that spent a year in a bourbon barrel, there was very little barrel character. I also thought it was pretty bitter/astringent. It couldn't be the hops after all that age and only 30 IBUs right? I was thinking maybe too many heavy roasted specialty grains (e.g., black patent) in the grain bill?
Anyone try it yet?
