Poured from growler.

A- Pours a solid brown color with red hues when light hits it. There was no head on this beer. No lacing but it did show a small coating on the sides of the glass.

S- Sweet malts in the front of the aroma. Darker fruits first show up then a clean roasted malt right after that. Hints of anise were present in the back of the aroma along with a touch more sweetness from the malts. Mild barrel aging notes with both oak and bourbon in the ending. Alcohol seems to come through pretty strong on this beer too.

T- Sweet malts come through with the taste as well. Darker fruits (plum and light cherry) come out with the roast finally showing up after all of this. Middle of the beer showed off more roast with hints of black licorice. Ending shows off the barrel which in turn was still a little weak. By the ending of the beer I got those sweet almost caramel malts once again with a nice oak flavor and light lingering bourbon that leads to a warming alcohol finish.

M- Medium-light mouthfeel. Carbonation was a tad thin on this beer. Sweet caramel malts and hints of roasted malt are left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly sweet caramel malts, warming alcohol, light oak, and lingering bourbon. Flavors were a little stop and go not making a smooth transition from one to the next. I didn't find any off flavors while drinking this one. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.

O- Overall I thought this beer almost tasted like a hybrid of a stout and barleywine with it not knowing which side to lean to. The barrel notes were nice but didn't do much for the overall aroma or flavor profile. I am a little curious to see how this one ages with hopes that the caramel malt dies down in flavor a bit making it a little more than a run of the mill barrel aged stout. One pour was enough for me as I had a hard time finishing it as when it warmed the sweetness started to become too much.
