rusty amber, lighter-colored than anticipated. probably thinking 'stout' when I saw bourbon barrel aged.... everybody's bb-aging everything these days... or blending everything, it seems....
fruits and alcohol, then bourbon on the smell.
taste is alcohol heat. liquid is thin, but the alcohol is very prominent. and not the bourbon. for $20, I expect WAYYY better than this. very one-dimensional. I get the slight toffee in there, the vanilla. somewhere there is some fruit, I guess. but I kind of feel like i'm nursing a cheap brand of no-name whiskey. not much to understand or know of it, and not certain if that taste was intended to be there, ya know?
it looks pretty good. it has a nice color and some good foamy stuff around the edges. but there isn't much else to hang the hat on here. alcohol HEAT is too prevalent and I feel i'm drinking the cheap sh*t... and yet this one cost $20 at Huntington beach total wine. very disappointed... article says it was brought out june 5th, and yet there are only three actual reviews on BA? is that the same as a restaurant never having any customers? I bet ratebeer has it at 96 like everything else... too expensive to dump; i'll choke it down, take whatever buzz I can get from it, and kiss my frig because there is better stuff in there to wash down the bad taste. glad I did this one first!!

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a dark caramel amber with slight ruby tones. A eigth inch odd-white head with great retention and thick lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, boubon, vanilla, oak, light stone fruit and orange, slightly boozy. Flavor follows aroma with caramel malt, boozy bourbon, toffee, light stone fruit and mild citrus, vanilla and oak. Hot and a bit ethanol forward. Finishes with a grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick creaminess. A hot, but otherwise moderately flavored ale that leaned more towards a barleywine than an old ale, because the biscuit and toasty malt of the latter are subdued here. There is some moderate complexity and a decent balance of flavors, but this tastes young and alchohol forward. Nice oak and moderated bourbon barrel flavors. I may pick up another bottle of this to see how it ages.
