Brewed this last year at Christmas. Did primary fermentation and racked it into a 5 gallon glass carboy with the oak cubes and 12 oz of cask strength Makers Mark. Sat it in the corner covered and forgot about it for 6 months. When I racked it to the keg it was crystal clear and had reached an amazing flavor rarely tasted in barrel aged beers. Full on chocolate and mild roasted notes. Heavy bourbon and tobacco comes through loud and clear. Still there is a lingering dark fruit flavor like raisins and dates. Finished at 11% abv.
