Thanks to Tom for this one!

Slightly hazed reddish copper color, plenty of lacing, drippy crown of thorns pattern around the rim of the glass. Tiny micro sediment is visible suspended in the glass.

Aroma is big on caramel and vanilla, fairly sweet but pretty good.

Body is pretty light, but big on flavor. Huge malt, sticky on the lips, vanilla, and light booze as it warms up. Eh, sort of falls apart as it warms up. Worth a try but not the best.
Edit 11/16: this apparently won a medal at FoBAB... Wonder if it was a new batch or special barrel or something.

Pours a frothy, tan head. Soft, sweet malt aroma with vanilla notes. Starts with a really sweet, Doppelbock-esque flavor. Builds into a really nice sweet maltiness with a touch of bourbony vanilla. Finish is malt with a touch of vanilla.

Wow. This is pretty fantastic. It's like a Doppelbock and amber ale had a baby that was put in a bourbon barrel.
