Had this beer at Mead Hall in Cambridge. Served cool, on tap and in a snifter.
Pours incredibly clear amber body and an off white ring head. This is a simple review. Smells like whisky, tastes like whisky. Just had a much lighter body than whisky. No very beer like but an amazing beer to try. Very drinkable. Whisky without the burn.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for this one!
Pours bright, clear copper with a thin head that becomes a thin cover. Some lacing follows down the glass.
The smell is of bourbon whiskey. Vanilla and oak really stand out. Caramel/toffee backs it up.
The taste is of bourbon. The vanilla and oak are quite strong. Caramel shows a firm maltiness. A light touch of earthy bitterness balances some of the sweetness. Whiskey hangs on well into the aftertaste.
It's on the full side of medium with medium carbonation.
Alcohol is reasonably well-covered, but this is still a sipping, one at a sitting brew for me. Nice bourbon character. Barrel aging well-done.
