Pours deep black with some mocha head settling into some swirls. Cork didn't pop, but wasn't totally devoid of carbonation.
Aroma features lots of notes from the booze. Spicy whiskey, some rum and liquor soaked raisins. A bit of chocolate and some other dark fruit as well as figs and dates. A touch of caramel and vanilla with a bit of oak influence.
A bit maltier flavor than the nose would lead me to believe although still notes of barrel. The spicy whiskey gives it a nice burn to balance out the sweet chocolate and dark fruits. Molasses and black licorice appear as well.
Alcohol is present and gives a nice little kick, but is not overpowering of the base. Mouthfeel is a touch too thin for my spirit aged preference and although it's not totally lacking carbonation, it's still a bit too low in that category.
Very complex flavors to this beer and very enjoyable. If the mouthfeel were more spot on this would be almost perfect. As it is, it's still a great beer, but could be something even more.

The beer comes in a dark black color.
The aroma has oak aging, medium amount of bourbon, with a lighter alcohol note, charred cherry wood, a tinge of fruitness.
The flavor follows of with charred wood in the front, lightly roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and bourbon. It tastes very much like a lighter version of BCBS. Alcohol comes through on the finish to clean off the palate.
A wonderfully delicious barrel aged brew.
