A-dark chestnut with a thin cream colored head
S-smells like a real strong and boozy ale. Caramel and lots of malts. Doesn't smell too great. Smells like a mess.
T-oh boy this is a strong one. This comes in with a taste of alcohol, caramel malts, and a lot of bitterness. It's fairly sweet and syrupy. It's a mess.
M-medium to low carbonation with a syrupy finish.
O-not sure what I was expecting, but from victory I was expecting something a little more refined. I can't believe how difficult this is to drink but then a beer like Olde School can be a work of art. This one is for tastings but I think it would take more than three people to drink this bottle.

I usually don't go for bourbon barrel aged beers in the summer but my boss bought this one for me and I never turn down a beer. Its very rich and has a great smell to it. I get notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. It's taste is very creamy with a strong vanilla and oaky flavor. Pretty standard compared to other stouts I've had that were aged in bourbon barrels but its still good!

Poured a copper red body with minor head and an aroma that is boozy - hits me hard. Also some wood (there's your oak) and touches of vanilla along with some caramel and other sugary sweetness. Thick, a little sticky but the oak keeps it smooth, the alcohol presence is apparent but thankfully complements, not hinders, the experience of slowly sipping on this beer. And it is a slow sipper because the bourbon/whiskey aspects along with the sweetness had me a little buzzed after I finished my pint. Beyond booze, caramel and vanilla possible dark fruits like figs are in the beer. Finishes a little hot and heavy as this a bourbon-like beer that is built for the long run.
