650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 2/22/14.

Appearance - Deep amber body. Small off white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Wet sock oxidized bourbon barrel and oak. Really impressive. Caramel malts. A hint of hops.

Taste - Bourbon and oak. Some grapefruit hops. Caramel malt. Oxidized malt finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - The bourbon barrel is good, but the base beer is too hoppy for me.
