Dark ruby red body and a thin lightly tanned head forms from a bartender pour into a snifter.

Sweet fruitiness - cherry and dark fruits and booze with a little wood on the nose.

The taste is boozy and warm from the bourbon. Little bit of coconut from the barrel. Dark fruit and cherry. Caramel and sweetness from the big malty beer and bourbon.

Smooth medium bodied with soft carbonation.

The barrel and spirit seem to dominate this beer which works for me.

Coffee colored; minimal beige head.

Smells like dark bready malt and whiskey barrel; has some savory nuttiness along with sweet malty and barrel notes - coconut, spice, vanilla - all meshing very well and smelling quite delicious, especially as it warms in the glass.

Tastes good, just as it smells; dark bready malt, nuttiness, and bourbon barrel flavors mesh nicely. Medium level of sweetness, well balanced, and eventually ending dry and a bit woody; good length. Tasty.

Good stuff.
