look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into an Ale Syndicate Pint Glass

A) Amber Reddish brown, thin one finger head, lacing, not cloudy but rather clear. Minor Carbonation

S) Wonderful! Bourbon, oak, burnt sugar, vanilla, grape skin, malt, alcohol

T) Same as aroma, Maris Otter for sure Bourbon up front, oak finish, sugar, vanilla, grape skin, fig and bread, not too boozy

M) Thick but not very carbonated

O) One of the best Bourbon Barrel beers I have ever had, perfect amounts of sweetness and flavor all around a great beer. Lots of flavor and worth the price.
