Pours amber with a one finger white head. The aroma has toffee, maple syrup, Bourbon, and wood.

Has a smooth, sweet flavor which is not overly sweet. There is toffee, maple syrup, Bourbon, coconut, vanilla, and wood. There is no bitterness to balance out the sweetness, but I don't think it is needed.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink, especially for being a Bourbon barrel aged beer. I am very glad I had a chance to try this beer.

750 bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, bourbon, oak, coconut, maple sweetness, bready wheat and caramel.

Taste: Nice nice bourbon barrel and maple syrup flavor. Hard to pick up anything else, but who cares, this beer tastes delicious. A little tart from the wheat and some caramel in there too.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy, smooth, low carbonation, mild bitterness, nice warm booze, medium to full bodied, and a little chewy.

Overall: Quite the treat. Makes me want to go find another bottle to hold for a while. This beauty could age well over time.
