Got one of these in the RS. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip.
a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one and a half fingers of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.
s - Smells of bourbon, smoke, charcoal, toasted malts, roasted malts, oak, caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, light dark fruits, and light sweet alcohol.
t - Tastes of smoke, charcoal, bourbon, caramel malts, toasted malts, burnt malts, roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, sugar, molasses, raisins, sweet dark fruits, some rye, bready malts, and alcohol. Little more smoke and char than the nose had, a small step down for me.
m - Medium bodied and low to moderate carbonation. Not as thick as I was expecting but also not very hot which is nice.
o - Overall I liked this one quite a bit, though it is no where near as good as the normal Bois. I enjoy Smoking Wood and so I enjoyed this, and while you get characteristics of both beers, there is a tiny bit too smoke and char for me. Worth checking out for sure, especially if you like those beers.

Bottle from Homer. Thanks buddy! Pours dark brown which ends up black in the glass with a half finger brown khaki head. Big bold aroma if peat, bourbon, oak, vanilla, smoke, caramel, big badass malt and booze here. Flavor is a peaty dark fruit whiskey, caramel, spicy rye, with some vanilla and smoke afterthoughts left there on the palate. Light chocolate and oakiness with booze but not nearly as boozy as I expected. Thick viscous mouthfeel as expected from a big Bruery beer with adequate carbonation. I know this is bourbon aged but it has a definitely rye whiskey time with additional peat and scotch notes.
