From the brewer

Music is best with friends, and the same is true for great beer. This red ale—dubbed WinterWonderGrass Banjo Bourbon Barrel-Aged Ale—is a collaboration between friends Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Breckenridge Distillery. The beer drinks slightly sweet with a creamy mouthfeel. Notes of chocolate, caramel, and butterscotch are balanced with big flavor from a soak in five-year-old Breckenridge bourbon whiskey barrels.

Who's been drinking this

Not a liquor barrel, but seems more like an amber that's been mellowed out in wood for a while. Smooth, caramel oak notes with a bit of a metallic, dry backbone.
