My father picked this beer up in Dallas on a trip from work and brought back a few to share with me. The aroma is something that I could smell all day. Seriously, they should make a candle. The taste is incredibly smooth and complex. Every sip I pick up on different flavors. Overall, one of the best beers I've ever had. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on a bottle.

4.21/5 rDev -3.2%
A: Pours a deep reddish brown leading to opaque black. Not as thick as expected. Half finger of light tan tight bubbled head. Fizzle of high carbonation.
S: Big vanilla, booze and oak. Overpowers to dark chocolate and roast.
T: High carbonation, prickles the tongue for a ris. Getting nice vanilla and bourbon flavors. Dark chocolate. Booze heat down back of throat. Finish is long and lingering.
M: Full bodied. But high carbonation.

Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours black with a thin, quickly dissipating tan head. There are some visible rising bubbles along the side of the glass. I get bourbon in the aroma with oak and vanilla. I get some sweetness in the aroma from the alcohol as well as some dark fruits and chocolate. The flavors in this beer are just delightful. I'm getting those barrel notes with the vanilla and bourbon. The chocolate and dark fruits also come out here. What is nice is the bourbon barrel notes don't overwhelm the flavors of this beer. The main knock against this beer is the lighter body, but this is only a minor gripe. While this beer isn't full bodied, it's moderate carbonation and medium, creamy body only help make this beer easier to drink. At 11.5% ABV, this is a bit dangerous. The alcohol also provides a nice warming effect to this beer and I can imagine this would be very delightful on a cold winter night. This is an excellent beer. Definitely give this one a try.

3.68/5 rDev -15.4%
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.
