I poured this into a tulip glass, and I was immediately surprised by the coloring on this beer. Typically the bourbon barrel aged beers are stouts, and this one is definitely not one. There is a single finger of foam from the initial pour. The coloring is a simple orange.
Off the top you can definitely smell a lot of vanillin and some of the oak. There is also the bourbon characteristics there as well. I also smell toffee. It is a little different to smell the bourbon without a coffee there.
The flavor has a lot of bourbon to it. It is almost like a thin bourbon with some carbonation added to it. I don't taste much of the beer aspects.
This is definitely something different, and new to me. I would pick up a bottle as this is one of those beers that you could lover or hate.
