Poured into a snifter at a tasting.

I had hyped this beer up and it was one of the beers I was most looking forward to trying. The appearance was a little light and pale for a beer of the style. The nose had faint vanilla notes that were hardly detictable. The taste was lacking as well, it seemed watered down and lacked any complexity. Mouthfeel was watery and thin. If I hadn't seen the bottle opened I would swear that this beer was cut to serve more people. Maybe it's because the night started with a big barrel aged stout but I found this beer lacking in every category. I would try it again just to see if I was given a bad bottle.

Smell was overwhelming oak, and a bit boozy...as it warmed, went downhill...very astringent finish....feels like Jr High Wood Shop was making out on my tongue!!

I am local to the area...so this should be a "homer review"...but this was over-oaked in the bourbon barrels, as the acidity and astringency were a bit much for me...not a bad bad beer but at $6 a bottle ...not worth it - if this were a wine, TD would lose on this one...too much oak!! Bourbon flavor was nice, and good vanilla notes as well...

Overall not a bad BA beer, but not digging the wood and too long in the barrels....

After just kinda not liking the effort to make this product seem premium that the gold foil does, I managed to cut my finger opening this one. I haven't a clue how I managed that but sure enough removing the foil cut my finger. So thumbs down on the packaging.

Pours a coca cola like color, very cloudy and dense. Next to no head or lacing.

The nose has some toffee, vanilla, oak, and of course bourbon on it.

I get what the bottle claims. Caramel, oak, vanilla....it's pretty straight forward, not much in the world of hops. Not much bitter balance. A pretty sweet beer made sweeter with the barrels. Nothing is wrong, but nothing gives this one that extra something either.

The mouth feel is where this one goes to hell. Just flat as it can be. Kinda runny, just not good. A 12% beer needs either body or carbonation. This has neither.

At these prices this is a no go for me. I will say make sure you drink this one on the colder side, it isn't an imperial stout that can be had at 60-70 degrees and still be wonderful. It needs to be in the 40's.
