General - I got this 22 oz bottle from a store a couple of weeks ago. Really nice corked bottle. Drinking it out of a chalice type glass that I had.
Appearance - The color is around an SRM 7 or so, beautiful light golden. Head was a light white frothy but it quickly faded. Fairly clear with just a touch of chill haze. This is a little too cold to be drinking right now, just out of the fridge.
Aroma - MMMM Bourbon! This thing has a big hit of the bourbon barrel that it was aged in. There is also an alcohol scent, not unsurprising with the 11% ABV on this bad boy. in the background there are some light citrus scents with a touch of banana. Really great scent.
Taste - If God were to brew a beer, it would taste like this. Seriously this is one of if not the best triples that I've had. The flavor of bourbon is perfect with the alcoholic burn and slight fruitiness. Amazing is all I can say.
Mouthfeel - A slightly thin feeling with a moderately high carbonation level. There is an alcoholic burn on the back of the throat also.
Overall - Wow, this is awesome. I couldn't ask for a better beer after a long day. Refreshing yet strong with a lot of great flavor.
