look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured into a Jack's Abby snifter. The beer is quite dark, if not black. Around the edges where some light penetrates its a deep brown. Very little head, more like a ring around the glass. No lace to speak of. Not really much to look at.

S - This is getting good. Nice aromas of vanilla, alcohol, mild roastiness, and dark chocolate. I also made a note that I could smell the barrel. Distinct charred wood notes.

T - Follows the nose. Up front flavors included the vanilla and dark chocolate sweetness. There is a spike of alcohol flavor and heat on the finish.

M - Silky, but a little thin on the front end, but on the finish it somehow expands to really fill up my throat. It's a nice mix. A couple points off for a residual stickiness that I'm not a huge fan of.

O - I've had limited experience with bourbon barrel aging, so I liked that the bourbon characteristics didn't seem too overpowering. The alcohol, too, was a little bit more present than I would like. I much prefer the basic Framinghammer.
