On tap at Beachwood Long Beach. This is listed as "Oh Dear".

A: Dark brown with a big light brown head that leaves lots of lacing as it recedes.

S: Robust caramel and sweet milk and dark chocolate notes with a nice amount of bourbon. Cocoa blends with vanilla and oak. Great barrel character. I get a little grape, plum, and coconut.

T: Firm caramel presence with lighter notes of chocolate. Booze presence is pretty strong. Bourbon is evident throughout and there's a faint vanilla note. I get some apple and brown sugar. Dark fruits remind me of plum and grape. The finish is bourbonic caramely chocolate. Booze is faint.

M: Upper medium body with matching carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and smooth.

Overall: A good barrel aged strong ale. Excellent aroma.

On tap for the 2nd Anniversary event at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of bourbon, wood, vanilla, fruits, slight malt, and some cookie dough aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, bourbon, wood, dark fruit, slight cocoa, and port flavors. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good barrel aged beer but it smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
