look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer has aggressive notes of oak and wood chips. Bourbon slightly comes through along with a toffee and dark fruit sweetness.

There's almost a smokiness because of the amount of big woody and deep toasted wood chips flavors in there.

The beer would be perfect to be paired with beef jerky or some smoked barbecue. A really interesting beer where "woodiness" works very well.

A 4 - Dark brown/black beer with a nice tan head on it that dissipates down to a thick film of bubbles. Cool wax on the bottle. No lacing.
S 4.25 - Bourbon, vanilla, toffee, caramel, cream. Oak barrels.
T 4 - Booze, Bourbon, vanilla, toffee, caramel, cream, oak barrels.
M 4 - Thick, medium-heavy, alc present, aftertaste bourbon/vanilla/cream/toffee. Great beer
O 4 - This beer is on par with Bois or double DBA. Better than Freudian Sip.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of smoked malt, campfire, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, fruit, smoke, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has a nice balance between the smoke and bourbon aspects.
