The tartness combined with the alcohol flavors are reminiscient of red wine. That was my first thought in taking a sip--almost a wine in beer form.
$9 dollars for a very small glass at the brewpub. Expensive, obviously. Would have had something cheaper if they had posted the price, which they did not. In fact, none of the beer menues were updated to include this beer. A little shady.
Good beer, though. Probably the best bourbon-barrel beer I've had, not so dominated by bourbon flavors as most of them seem to be. I still want to know that I'm drinking beer, and the bourbon quality here is just right. Not sorry I had the beer, though I wouldn't have spent 9 bucks for a tiny glass of it had I known the price. I would have gotten two pints of the moloko milk stout for the same price, as my friend did.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Local Option on 12/14/12, served in a snifter.
Pour: Pitch black, with some tan head that quickly dissipates to a collar. No lacing.
Smell: Big bourbon bite up front, followed by some dark chocolate, and more booze. Roasted malts on the finish.
Taste: Follows the nose with boozy bourbon up front, some dark chocolate, and a light marshmallow. Lots of roasted malts. Finish is boozy bourbon and caramel.
Mouthfeel: Lighter, with nice carb. Booziness is warming and hot. I can imagine this was very hot when it was first released.
Overall: A nice, lighter bourbon barrel stout. A little hot still, and I'm not sure the body can suppor the barrel aging.
