22oz bottle into snifter. Thanks again, Josh!

A: Pours a deep brown with a thin light tan head that quickly faded into a faint bubbly collar. Minimal spotty lace was left down the glass.
S: Sweeter than expected. I get notes of boozy whiskey, faint cherry, mild chocolate, woody oak and mild leather.
T: Not as much whiskey as I would have hoped or expected. Sherry and caramel dominate alongside flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, and warming booze. The aftertaste is full of raisin and chocolate. There is a mild lingering of whiskey, but it doesn't scream Pappy.
M: Full body, smooth mouthfeel but sharp carbonation. Decent.
O: I was definitely let down by this one. I hoped more of the barrel had come through. Good but not great.

Another Jackie O's brew from hotpipes. Cheers!

From a bomber into a snifter
Bottle 177 of 300

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fizzy, tan head with half decent retention. Head quickly recedes to a ring only. Clear bistre brown body with no carbonation evident. A slight ring remains until the end but leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Oak, bourbon, alcohol and spicy aromas on the nose. Dark fruits, grapes, dates and raisins as well. Notes of brown sugar and dark caramel as well. Bold nose with plenty of complexity from the barrel and base beer.

TASTE: Caramel and brown sugar up front with lots of barrel and spicy alcohol at the swallow. Bourbon, oak, light vanilla and strong caramel sweetness, brown sugar and dark fruits linger on the palate. Boozy and spicy alcohol with plenty of malt sweetness. Quite flavorful but slightly too boozy perhaps.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on the palate, creamy enough as well, though a touch harsh going down and finishes rather sticky. Heat lingers. Big burn, lots of heat and a touch prickly perhaps. A little rough going.

OVERALL: This is okay and relatively complex and interesting, but the harsh and hot feel detract from the experience. This is very boozy. I can definitely see some potential here, and perhaps leaving it alone for a couple years will give it time to mellow out a little, but as it stands now, this is too rough to really be as enjoyable as it wants to be. If you have one, hang onto it until the calendar reads 2015 at least. Thanks again hotpipes. Always good times.

22oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary glass. Generously shared by rudzud at a recent tasting. I love showing up at a tasting and having a beer like this pulled out...a super rare beer...one that I had never even heard of, but sounds amazing - Pappy Van Winkle barrels - how can this be bad?

A - Pours a beautiful clear body with a dark amber brown color. No head at all forms...barely a collar left behind.

S - Butterscotchy, booze...bourbon is strong but super smooth, dark caramel and dark brown sugar...really nice.

T - Butterscotch up front and very, very smooth. Smooth, sweet bourbon goodness. Amazingly smooth, vanilla and caramel...did I mention how incredibly smooth this is?

M - Smooth bourbon, sweet. Medium body with lower carbonation.

O - Excellent. The barrels worked some magic here. This was one of the highlights of the night of one outstanding beer after another.
