3.7/5 rDev +0.8%
A: Copper-orange, hazy, two-finger creamy head.
S: Definitely bourbon, also molasses, toffee, and...cherry pie? Idk, that's what I'm getting.
T: Bready, almost shortbread-like malt character followed by sweet toffee, finishing with booze and powerful vanilla. The oak character is blended in nicely rather than being a slap in the face.
M: Much lighter than expected for such a malt-heavy beer. Velvety carbonation.
O: I really didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised! Sweet, malty, and quite drinkable.

For the record this is the first time I've ever given a negative review. If I hadn't paid $12.99 for a four pack I would have let it go but there are too many great and very good beers waiting to be had that get less hype.
No head or aroma to speak of. In a nutshell I just had a 12 oz boilermaker watered down with vanilla extract. I needed salted pistachios to eliminate the strange aftertaste at sip number three.
If I'm drinking whiskey and want a beer chaser this might be more appealing.
I'm going to try it in a chile or a lamb and lentil soup recipe.
As a stand alone quaff definitely not recommended. Won't try it again.
