4.01/5 rDev -0.7%
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle acquired in trade from a non BA-member. Sampled on August 4, 2014.
The pour is an intriguing looking reddish-amber with a quick burst of off-white. A slight fog.
The aroma explodes with barley malts, maybe a little chocolate, sweetness, dark fruits, but little to no booze.
The body is medium to heavy.
The taste is much like the aroma with bountiful malts, chocolate, and a bitter bite that sneaks up quickly on the back side. I pick up a tad more alcohol in the flavor than in the nose but it is incidental.

3.1/5 rDev -23.3%
Pour is dark copper, a bit murky with a small amount of tan head. Nose is tons of sticky caramel and a bit of brown sugar, a decent bit of rich maltiness, light bourbon notes and a hint of wood. Taste is a bit sweet, the rich malts depth isn't quite there, a good bit of caramel and more brown sugar, slightly cooked, flavor thins towards the back. Bourbon comes in on the finish, soft, full bodied and moderate carbonation and a bit of lingering booziness.

A very soft hiss as I popped the cap had me worried this would be nearly flat, but a creamy head forms before dying down to a milky ring. The body is a dark, foggy auburn, despite my best efforts to keep the yeast in the bottle. Boozy wooden barrel aromas initially, developing into raisin bread, maple syrup, toffee, vanilla, hazelnut, tobacco, and bitter cocoa. Super smooth Bourbon flavor - not too boozy at all. Toffee, vanilla bean, crumbled graham crackers, dried purple fruits, cakey malts, and a trailing hoppy bitterness. Feels oily slick and smooth in the mouth and medium bodied, which is light for the style and ABV. This would make a great beer to sip on a cool fall evening.

Got this as an extra in a trade and was very excited to break it open. As much as I think the bourbon barrel aged stuff is a trend of making big beers taste even bigger, I'm a sucker for it.
Beer looks great. Smell is fantastic. Bourbon and vanilla and toffee dominate. slightly under carbonated mouth feel but still very nice. Flavor is sweet over sweet. Not sure how old my bottle is but I wouldn't let it sit any longer. No heat at all either for being over 9%.
I'd drink this one again for sure. just maybe after dinner next time.
