12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep black body. Small khaki head. The thinnest of collars as it settles.
Smell - Bourbon. Oak. Some dark chocolate. Booze.
Taste - Very oaky. Bourbon behind the oak. Sharp boozy bourbon. Dark chocolate. No sweetness. Oak lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. A little boozy. Medium heavy body.
Overall - Excellent beer all around. Never overpowering, except maybe the oak.

Black body, head that's thin and temporary.
The smell's all bourbon.
Sweet. Tempted to say bourbon's stronger on the nose but that's not right. Vanilla-ish flavor, roasted malts that don't quite resemble chocolate and booze that forms a thin dark fruit and a semi-coconut.
Approachable and awfully smooth. Carbonation's particularly light. Not all that heavy, even if it were a porter. Could stand to be sturdier.

Pours out of the bottle dark brown, produced a finger of khaki colored and tight bubbled head. Smells of vanilla, oak, milk chocolate and bourbon booze. Smells really good. Taste is much the same as smell. A thin body that tasted of vanilla up front, milk chocolate and a lingering bourbon alcohol flavor that seems to wash out most of the other flavors. Eh. This drinks like a lot of the midwestern bourbon barreled stouts a la Blacknote and Blackout. Thin body, huge bourbon notes and almost no sweetness.
