look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours out a deep ruby red with a thick beige topping. Plenty of lace behind.
Dark fruity raisin aroma, caramel, some piney resin hop. The full barrel comes through with vanilla, wood and whiskey which I was wondering about since it isn't 100% barrel aged.
Lots of dark fruit malt flavor that is pretty raisiny. Large amount of sweet caramel that kinda washes out the hop character which peeks in a bit to say hi. Slight heat and burn from the alcohol at the end. Get a little spice and cherry when it warms.
It is fairly well carbonated. When you swirl the glass you can see the bubbles and you feel them on the tongue but it still remains somewhat thick.
Had this on draft of its first release and enjoyed it but its awesome to have a bomber to slow sip at home. Might be worth it to age one for a while to kill the heat although it drinks great fresh. Nice array of flavors.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass. Deep ruby red with a one finger off white head leaving plenty of lace.
Lots of dark fruit in the nose. Plenty of barrel with vanilla and whiskey make this one smell really good. I don't notice the resiny hop aroma that many mention, but I may not be fully tuned to it.
Front of the taste is great. Smooth, the bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit mix really well and sweet. Very good. However, on the back, the alcohol and hoppiness was distracting. Maybe aging this one would file off the rough edges a bit.
The mouthfeel was good. Fizzy, yet thick, as it should be.
Overall a really good tasting beer, just wasn't keen on the bite toward the finish. Going to try and get another one and age it.

4.33/5 rDev +2.4%

Poured into a small sampler glass. Deep amber color with a thin off-white head.
Sweet black cherries and figs with some ethanol aromas.
I get an intensely sweet malt and saccharine syrup. The same cherry and fig flavors are here, as well as a slight floral hops bitterness.
Full bodied, with long-lasting sticky mouthfeel. Would do again.
