Pours oily black with almost no head to speak of, but a creamy and lasting lacing on the edge of the glass. Smells of rich caramel and oak with hints of chocolate and booze. Taste is similar to the aroma with a strong Bourbon presence and lots of toast and toffee. Mouth feel is slightly more smooth / lighter than what you'd expect from the malt profile and barrel presence. Finishes sweet and clean.

A: thicker dark khaki head than expected. Pitch black up to the light.

S: bourbon, booze all day. Vanilla.

T: boozy, bourbon comes through, less complex than expected. Really, it's booze, a hint of choc, and a hint of vanilla. Was expecting more.

M: thinner, felt like coating could have been better.

O: for 9$, I will skip.

Appearance - 4/5
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with hints of red along the edges of the glass. About one to two fingers of dark-tan head.

Smell - 3.65/5
Vanilla, alcohol, oak, bourbon. The aroma is slightly sweet.

Taste - 4.2/5
Vanilla, oak, bourbon. Fairly sweet. Tastes similar to Dragon's milk except much less roasty, and more alcoholic flavor. I think I prefer Dragon's Milk.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Smooth, carbonation is fairly light. Medium bodied.

Overall - 4/5
This was a fairly good Oak-bourbon-barrel-aged beer. However not my favorite. I would prefer Dragon's Milk or Backwoods Bastard any day. Also, definitely not worth the $9 I paid for a 12oz bottle.
