Served from a bottle only a week after bottling. Smell is pronounced bourbon and oak upon pouring. Medium to small head and a nice dark amber color to the beer. More carbonated than expected.

The flavor follows the smell but is a bit more bitter. First thought to comes to mind is their 17th Anniversary beer, but this one is notably more bitter and has less vanilla. The bitter works pretty well at masking the alcohol and balancing out the bit of sweetness in the beer. I'm getting some char flavors too after each swig. They used these barrels for the 20th anniversary bourbon stout recently and you can tell in the flavor.

Overall, very tasty stuff and quite drinkable. Not quite what I expected but enjoyable nonetheless.
