A: Pours a nearly opaque black color with a bit of brown/ruby around the edges. A two finger tan head forms, and recedes quickly to a ring. Light lace.
S: Plenty of barrel aroma. Wood, vanilla, and syrupy molasses. Vanilla sweetness.
T: Follows the nose. Plenty of barrel flavors, wood, vanilla, bakers chocolate. Some molasses.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Though smooth at the same time. This is a plenty big beer. A slow sipper for sure.

Yep, this is pretty much the same thing as Bishop's Barrel 1. Maybe a bit more integrated. I still enjoy it, and can't find a lot at fault here that was not in the first release. Still, I can't help but feel a bit of a let down.

Poured a 12 oz. bottle into snifter. Was dark black with very thin brown head. Smelled of a very strong bourbon flavor with some additional vanilla and oak aroma. Taste was dominated by bourbon heat with a powerful molasses finish. The molasses amplified the bourbon flavor, and I found this taste really overpowered the beer and was too sweet for my taste, with more heat than I generally like. The mouthfeel was definitely substantial, almost sticky owing to the sugary flavor. I was pretty underwhelmed on the whole. I think it could have used a bit more balance, and the molasses didn't seem like a good pairing with the bourbon barrel aging.
