A- Darkish brown with a foamy light brown head. Some light shines through, but pretty dark.
S- Tons of sweet bourbon, coconut, caramel, slight nutty aroma too. Very nice.
T- Sweet bourbon, toasted oak, coconut, honey, burnt sugar. Very deep and complex.
M- Medium carbonation, full bodied, warming alcohol presence, lingering aftertaste.
O- Excellent beer. Tremendous depth and complexity.

On draft at the Bainbridge Barrel House in Philly. Served in a 6 ounce snifer.
Appearance: Dark muddy brown with a solid finger's worth of creamy looking foam on top. Head sticks around for a while, with some lacing. Almost looks like a nitro pour.
Smell: I don't even need to put my nose near it. Lots of bourbon, oak, and booze coming off of the snifter.
Taste: It's good. Following the nose, there is lots of bourbon, charred oak, and hot alcohol. Mixed in with those flavors are molasses, vanilla, and lots of dark fruits like raisin, date, and fig. As the beer warms a bit, the bourbon and oak flavors start to dominate. Throughout it all, there is a prevailing note of really warm alcohol; I could feel it in my stomach after the first sip.
Mouthfeel: Thick and sticky, with a decent amount of carbonation and a very long, boozy, bourbon-y finish.
Overall: I can't really say anything bad about this beer. In fact, I can say lots of good things. But somehow, it fails to live up to the hype for me. This isn't to say that it's bad, and I'm glad that I got to try it once, but I don't know if I'd seek it out again, especially for the very expensive bottle price.
