Appears a dark amber tone with a fluffy white cap that fades into a small collar. Speckles of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of caramel, orange citrus notes, vanilla, anise, and pepper.
Taste is if the aromas, with a citrusy, spicy, bourbon with southern comfort punch.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, warming, and smooth. For Christ's sake, how is this 11.5%? Smooth.

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this at the Dusty Sheep in Lancaster, PA. enjoyed chilled in a 1/2 pint.

The color is dark amber like maple syrup with a translucent clarity and sandstone head that settles to a ring of beads, lace sticks. The smell is very intense with wood from the barrel malt and a lot of vanilla aroma with some light whiskey odor. The feel is great really full with mild carbonation and slight alcohol under a foundation of rich malt with semi-dry finish with warming after the sip.

The flavor manages to incorporate all of the components of the aroma with mostly malt chewiness and and subtle alcohol from the barrel with smoothness of the vanilla adding to the profile in a way that makes it all come together with sweet, spice and wood represented well. Overall this is a great wood aged beer-it is showing some of the abv in the flavor with subtle wood tannin, but it could be a good candidate for cellaring and i would not hesitate to have it again if presented with the opportunity.
