Look - dark brownish red with a good slightly tan head with constant bobbles
Smell - bourbon and sweet carmel. You can smell the booze.
Taste - sweet Carmel and bourbon barrel wood. Slightly toasty.
Feel - medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy.
Overall - fantastic bb Amber!

Beautiful red/copper color is it's only redeeming quality. It is truly beautiful to look at. Alcohol comes off like cough medicine. Looks like previous versions of this were 7.5%, this one is 10.2%. While I'm a big fan of bourbon barrel beers, this one is not one I would seek out.

Pours slightly hazed copper with a fluffy lasting head. Plenty of lacing sticks.

The smell is of bourbon/wood and caramel.

The taste is of strong bourbon, wood, booze. A vague fruitiness and toast balance some of the sweetness, though it remains sweet.

It has soft carbonation. The body is medium. A fuller body may cover the alcohol more. There is a certain amount of creaminess to it.

An amber ale with strong bourbon. A nice sipper of an amber ale blended with bourbon.

I recently had this on draft at Milwaukee Ale House. I've had it previously and while good, it wasn't something I would call out to specifically recommend. I knew something was different immediately when I tasted this year's version. Upon further inspection of the menu and talking to the bartender, it seems like MKE upped the octane this year to 10.2% ABV. You can definitely taste the barrel more than ever before. It recently won Gold at FoBAB according to the menu.
