look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: minimal amount of foam that faded quickly. It had a dark copper color and slight lacing.
S: vanilla and oak mostly with a slight alcohol note underneath
T: to me this beer lived up to its potential. It was slightly sweet with vanilla and oak flavored. There was little doubt about the bourbon barrel's impact on this brew. Hardly any bitterness
M: light with a lasting bourbon finish
O: This wasn't the beer I was planning on having at the pub but I'm glad it's the one that landed on my coaster! I'll be grabbing some for the beer fridge!
Serving type: on-tap

A: crystal clear; a beautiful bronze; 1 finger egg shell head that receded quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass; little lacing;
S: vanilla, oak. a little boozy;
T: vanilla up front, oak and booze at mid-palate; vanilla really comes through in the finish; very little bitterness;
M; light to medium bodied - lighter than I expected; moderate carbonation;
O: maybe this beer had been built up too much, but I was a little disappointed; this is a nice beer, bit not as complex as I would have liked;

This bba ale pours a handsome deep copper color with very little head but decent film and legs. The aroma is a rich blend of vanilla, oak, leather, and nice warm booze. The flavor is just as rich and delicious. There is alot of bourbon here and alcohol heat. Its actually surprisingly hot given the abv. Mouthfeel is thick n sticky, in the best way. I love this, but I also love bourbon. If you don't then you're gonna hate this. If you do, do yourself a favor and drink this at room temperature.
