22 ounce bottle - Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a tall crown of tan-hued foam, receding at a steady clip, leaving little flecks of lace on the descent.
Smell: Sweet-scented bourbon notes dovetailed into the Barney Flats scent, with its touches of mild-blend coffee and chocolate-dipped oatmeal cookies.
Taste: Their BFOS presented a steady, sweet maltiness, with semi-sweet chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, and a smooth, creaminess from the oats and light dark fruitiness. Adding in the smooth vanilla, brown sugar, coconut, oak elements from bourbon barrels is just gravy. Smooth, sweet-sided finish with lingering aforementioned bourbony accents.
Mouthfeel: Medium, though nicely textured and wholly drinkable with decent amounts of carbonation.
Overall: It's a good bourbon barrel-aged beer. For the bourbon barrel-aged beer lover in us all.

Pours and off very very deep opaquer brown with creamy tan head that held well. Thin collar. Aroma is some dark chocolate, vanilla and caramel sweetness. Taste is much the same with no noticeable bourbon or oak presence until the very end. Creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation and a body just on the thin side of thick.

3.81/5 rDev +1.3%
Appearance: black in color, 3/4 inch head, low carbonation, opaque
Smell: light chocolate and roasted malt
Taste: oak, chocolate, toffee, cocoa--a bit of Tootsie Roll taste
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, heavy body, sweet with oakiness
Overall: I was impressed with the oakiness of this beer at first, but unfortunately the taste did not carry all the way through this beer. It was still strong enough, but I wish the flavor was a bit stronger. Still I would get this one again if I saw it on tap. Not quite what I would call good, but certainly one of the better brews from Anderdon Valley.
