3.5/5 rDev -6.9%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep brown. Small khaki head. Medium collar.
Smell - Bourbon. Deep caramel. Milk chocolate. Banana, but not a phenolic aroma.
Taste - Strong bourbon and a little bit of that banana. Lots of oak. Oak becomes very intense, actually. Chocolatey.
Mouthfeel - Very oaky. A little boozy. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - The banana fruity element adds a nice dimension, but otherwise it's totally dominated by the barrel.

notes from my review, enjoyed on the super bowl.
Aroma is high in bourbon and light vanilla and oak. Sweetness is composed of light brown sugar, and light caramel. Faint roast.
Medium high bourbon, chocolate, light roast, soft caramel. Medium molasses like sweetness. Medium light earthy hop bitterness. Finishes moderately sweet, with a strong, lingering bourbon aftertaste. Medium alcohol, little hot. Would do well w a few months on it - bummer I only have one.
Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Alcohol warmth is moderate.
This was a nice showcase of what a barrel can do to a beer. I've had the regular base beer many times, so the barrel and bourbon qualities really stood out, in a complimentary and interesting way. The bourbon and alcohol characteristics were quite high. If I have it again with some age on it, I would love to see the bourbon come down a bit, oak to pop more and the alcohol warmth to subside a bit. Solid, flavorful, tasty barrel aged treatment for an already fabulous beer.

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks Erik for sharing!
(A)- Pours a murky burnt sienna color. Minimal froth and lacing.
(S)- Nice bits of vanilla and caramel with a big showing of bourbon oak. Subtle raisin in the background.
(T)- Again, strong barrel notes in this. Big bits of vanilla and raisin.
(M)- A good carbonation level. This really showcases the bourbon barrel with the base beer taking back stage. What makes it is despite its big showing of the bourbon oak, it sits perfectly at only 7%ABV, so no booze burn.
(O)- I like this. A solid take on barrel aging the style and surprisingly drinkable too.

Had on tap at the brewery.
A: Pours brown with little head.
S: Bourbon and roasted malt.
T: Very nice bourbon and malt upfront followed by light coffee and a hint of vanilla. Small amount of hop bitterness in the finish. The initial taste of this is very good, but it thins out way to quickly.
M: Thin for the style and below average carbonation.
O: If it did'nt thin out so fast, this could be a very good beer.
