On-tap at the Pre-DLD Flossmoor Event. I was only able to try this after Alex brought some out from inside. Thanks bro!
A - Pours like the Imperial Schwartz, cola-like, tan head.
S - More balance with the blend of Pullman Reserve into this beer. You can still taste the barrel notes from the Imperial Schwartz, but the caramel and brown sugar notes from the Pullman add a nice touch.
T - Similar to the nose, more Imperial Schwartz and barrel notes then Pullman Reserve, but it all works. Burnt sugars, caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon. Finish is sweet bourbon mixed with carmel and oak.
M - Medium body, good carbonation, creamy finish.
O - The best Flossmoor beer of the day. So glad Alex came out with this and I was able to get a sample. Maybe they'll release this again some day or even bottle it. It sure would be nice!

On-tap at Flossmoor Station. No information provided about the specific proportions or whether these were blended pre- or post-barrel aging. Served in a snifter.
A - A finger of tan foam settles to a collar, partial cap, and plenty of lace. Near-black body.
S - Less bourbon-heavy than the Imperial Schwartz, with more dark chocolate, roast, and marshmallow flavors. Still, there's a good deal of vanilla, oak, and a light green apple note.
T - Again, quite roasty, with more dark chocolate and toasted malts, and a touch less overt bourbon presence. Still, there's a good deal of oak and vanilla present. The Pullman Reserve definitely sweetens things up a bit.
M - Nearly identical to the BA Imperial Schwartz - perhaps a few more bubbles.
D - This was the best of the barrel-aged beers at Flossmoor for Pre-DLD, and most people missed it because it was inside and poorly advertised. I'd certainly have this one again.
