Deep mahogany pour with a small color of bubbles for a head. Aroma of dark fruits and bready yeast, boozy heat right from the get-go. Taste of caramel malts and dark fruits, grain alcohol, pumpernickel, and a pretty big oak quality. Not as smooth as I like my BB beers to be, but this is a style I don't often have in a barrel-aged form. Body was medium, smooth, hot, but not too hot, appropriate carbonation. Pretty good overall.

I had this on-tap at the anniversary party. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a mahogany color with some red at the edge when the light comes through. There is almost no head.

Smell: Quite sweet with some raisins and caramel. There is also some heat from the bourbon that hits the nose.

Taste: Super sweet with lots of dark fruit and some cherries. I'm getting caramel along with the bourbon. The finish is also quite sweet.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit on the syrupy side with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very sweet beer, but I enjoyed it. Fairly smooth. A nice beer to have for dessert. I'd have more.

22 oz bottle. Thanks to Geist, Steve or Thorpe or someone.

Pours a dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Pleasant aroma of vanilla, dark fruit, booze, oak and cherry. Barrel forward flavor, vanilla and caramel with light oak blends seamlessly with a robust malty quad. Medium thick with fine carbonation. Easy drinking for the style.

Thanks to oline73 for gifting me this bottle. Very gracious. Shared with Thorpe and Humbard.

The beer is dark brown with a thin, wispy head that fades rapidly, leaving little lace. The aroma offers brown bread, Belgian yeast, oak, bourbon. Nice flavor. Well balanced. A bit of heat in the finish. Lingering caramel malt and brown bread with bourbon barrel character. Tasty beer.

Bottle 170/341 out of the '12 batch.

A: Pours a very dark red with some brown in there. Big fluffy and effervescent light brown head. Minor spots of lacing but not much. Quite decent head retention, however.

S: Decent bourbon but nothing overpowering. A nice caramel and dark fruit medley, mainly with grape, raisin and fig. Touch of brown sugar. Nice.

T: Again, decent bourbon up front but it's not huge. Really nice sweet caramel and toffee notes with vanilla I'd say. Mixes in with the sweet dark fruits quite nicely. Again, mainly raisin and fig but definitely some grape and maybe even cherry? Just a hint. Vanilla, brown sugar and caramel make everything very sweet well into the middle. Sweetness fades just a bit in the finish, giving it more of a dried fruit flavor with some oak and some earthy belgian yeast character. A bit of drying oak and yeast linger between sips with hints of pure bourbon. No noticeable booze at all, very smooth.

M: Relatively low carbonation, nice medium/heavy body. Smooth.

O: This is really an awesome quad. The barrel aging isn't overpowering like some Jackie-O's beers (or barrel-aged beers in general if I'm honest), it just adds some mild but noticeable character to the beer. Mainly contributes a very nice coating caramel and vanilla sweetness to everything and gives another aspect of flavor to enjoy.
