A - A nice very dark red/brown with a decent white head.
S - You really smell the wood. It also has that nice, buttery spiciness of bourbon. There is also a certain amount of smokiness to the nose. This is a great smelling beer.
T - The flavor matches the smell profile, but as a bonus there is an alcohol finish. The malt flavor come through as toffee and it adds a little sweetness to the end of the sip.
M - This has a nice balance between a thick body and a fair amount of carbonation (especially considering the abv).
O - I really enjoyed this beer. The bourbon barrel comes through a lot, but it is not too overpowering so you can still taste the complexities of the grain bill.
