Poured from bottle into a brandy snifter

A - Pours thick and syrupy. Body is as dark as a brown hue can get and completely opaque. A luxurious chestnut head foams on top.

S - Wonderful. Bing cherries, molasses, dark chocolate, oak and vanilla.

T - Even better than the smell. The sweetness of the malt hits you upfront, ushering in waves of brown sugar, raisin, chocolate, and vanilla. The finish is full of oak and saccharine bourbon. Just bit of heat from the alcohol as it goes down, especially as the beer warms to room temperature. Supremely balanced.

M - Pleasantly thick, though not overtly chewy. The carbonation is kept in check to let the rest of the beer shine.

O - Probably my second favorite barrel-aged dark beer after KBS. The bourbon flavor is present, but by no means dominates the beer. Jack's Abby has really asserted itself as an East Coast brewing artist, and this beer clearly shows the lofty heights of their craft.

Thanks SteveOldrati for the hookup. 500ml bottle poured into a tulip, the bree appears dark brown in color with a rich mocha head. Some lighter brown clarity and ruby hinted hues are seen when held to the light.

The aroma is strikingly nutty like peanuts. Was not expecting that...before the onset of charred grain, roast, earth and chocolate with some raw woodiness.

The taste includes coconut and vanilla before turning to some whiskey soaked woody aspect. More sips reveal caramel and boozy bourbon with slight citrus and earthiness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Quite boozy but enjoyable too. Where did that nuttiness come from? Strange but enjoyable.

Black in color with a small tan head. The head dissipates almost immediately and cannot be revived, even with a swirl of the glass. The beer sticks to the side of the glass, a common feature I've noticed in many bourbon barrel aged beers. Great aroma, dominated by bourbon, with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. The taste follows suit. Full-bodied, yet surprisingly drinkable despite how boozy it is. The bourbon is up front and on your face, which is ok with me but should be noted regardless. I did get tired of this beer towards the end. Very smooth but really hurts from the lack of carbonation. Add those fizzy bubbles in and this is a winner. Without them, it's still tasty, but just falls a little flat.
