22 oz bomber poured into snifter.

A: pours with a nice off white head. pretty good retention. about 2 fingers. Decent lacing at first.

S: smells delicious. I get bourbon on the nose as well as sweet malts. Some hops. a bit of resinous pine / fruits.

T: excellent. sweetness from the bourbon and malt. some fruity flavors come through. A nice lingering bourbon-y / bitter finish. Hops don't come through too much, but are there.

M: good mouthfeel. Not too thick. Carbonated appropriately for the style.

O: very good beer. glad I have another bottle. Wish it wasn't so expensive!

Appearance is beautiful. Nice head.

You definitely smell the whiskey off of it and it is lovely!

Taste is Amazing! I was already a huge Rodeo Clown fan but this beer was pure liquid gold.

Overall if you are a DIPA lover, it is a must have/try. Luckily i still have a few stashed!

Again, seriously, not a single real review? Whatever. On tap at BRC in Houston. Their menu said this is 10.5% ABV. BRC's menu is not always correct, but that seems right.

A: Pours a murky reddish/orange color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes in a minute. Light lace is left behind.
S: Wood and vanilla up front. The barrel character is up front, but not in your face. The toasted and caramel malts of the base beer round everything out. Just a hint of bitterness lingers. Simple, and enjoyable.
T: The wood, vanilla, toasted malts and caramel all intermingle to make a great balanced offering. Nothing stands out, and everything is in check. Again, a bit of bitterness lingers.
M/D: A medium to full body. Moderate carbonation that is so smooth. Just a hint of warming alcohol that makes this really nice to sip on. The alcohol is obviously big, but really enjoyable.

I have always liked the base beer as a Barleywine, and not a DIPA. That base, Barelywine malty character with the subtle, but always noticeable barrel is great. Enjoyable is the word.
