Had this poured from a bottle. This was my first barrel aged beer and I was pleasantly surprised by it.
A - looked very much as how a scotch would look, with a nice solid brown color. There was maybe 1 cm of head, even with an aggressive pour.
S - smelled extremely complex, with lots of different notes. Most prominent were vanilla and some whiskey scent. Oak finds its way through as well, kind of subtle in the beginning.
T - way different from what I've ever had before. Tasted of bits of light citrus, vanilla, and a more prominent whiskey flavor. That oak and whiskey flavor threw me off in the beginning, but I enjoyed it towards the end.
M - it was a light to moderate mouth feel. There wasn't anything crazy about how it felt, but this aspect also put the beer's taste into the spotlight.
O - As my first time trying this, I walked away with a pretty nice impression of it. Although I read a description of the beer before I ordered, the beer just destroyed any expectation I had of it, in a good way. This may not be the best beer to try for those just getting into it, but everyone should try it at least once.

Bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Nice amber oak colour; very similar to whiskey. Foam was about a finger high and white, but dissipated after only about 5 minutes.
Smell: Foam was very aromatic, with toffee and vanilla prominent and a hint of oak.
Taste: Medium bodied with wood a little too prominent in the flavour. Vanilla and toffee flavours could only be detected after about 20 seconds. Very slight bitterness and moderate sweetness. Medium carbonation. Definitely drinkable, but perhaps could be improved with a little less oak.
