4.56/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer is a very dark brown, not massively thick but too dark to show through, with a small tan head that holds up reasonably well and drops mostly spotting on the glass below a ring at top.
This beer has massive depth, character and complexity all over the place, masterfully blended without losing anything. All over this beer is lots of wood, even some soft bark in there, plenty of smoked caramel and vanilla. Creamy dark chocolate and milk chocolate mingle in there as well, a bit of cocoa powder dryness evening the sweetness out. Alcohol adds a warmth and a little kick without going too astringent with overbearing ethanol punch. Brown sugar sweetness comes in and mingles with the lightly smoky notes. This beer seems to move in phases and develop layers, almost dancing on the tongue.
Dryness and sweetness mingle for an overall semi-dry effect on the palate, mixing creamy with powdery without clashing. It's full-bodied without exactly being thick, and it has lots of richness, keeping both crisp and smooth from start to finish.

look: 2 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky deep brown. Thin collar. Pond watery. No real head.

Smell - Great bourbon barrel character. Lots of oak and vanilla. Caramel malt. Brown sugar. Nice.

Taste - Doesn't really live up to the smell, but it's good. Rich caramel. Bourbon. Oak. Some buttery flavors. Brown sugar. Slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium low carbonation. Boozy.

Overall - Very tasty, even if it doesn't live up to the smell.

4.1/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one.

Bottle # 283.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, caramel, cocoa, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that smells nice but the bourbon presence is slightly better in the taste in my opinion.
