Bottle brought back from my trip to Michigan. Drank after the golden delicious...at around 12:30pm on a Sunday...
A - A thick head with a pour, retains about a inch or so of head after the pour and holds onto it for a while. Black and brown with a ruby hue. Slight lacing retention.
S - Fresh bourbon and a little sweet toffee, carmael and light brown sugar.
T - Zesty vanilla and a bit earthy. Only slight bit of bourbon. Suprising difference between the smell and taste in that I expected the taste to follow the smell, but it was only slightly the case. Very enjoyable though.
M - Lighter than I thought based on the nose and the taste. I expected it to feel thicker than it was. The carbonation is perfect and crisp, easy and enjoyable to drink.
D - A very nice treat. The senses say one thing while the texture says something different. Very complex and a nice suprise. I'm very please and wish I bought more.

Appearance: black, maybe dark mahogany. A small tannish head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind. Completely opaque.
Smell: mostly bourbon. Maybe some chocolate.
Taste: lots of bourbon. Low alcohol. Some chocolate. Very smooth.
Mouthfeel: very light. A little bit of lager aspect to it.
Overall: a nice light bourbon barrel beer. Pretty light and nicely simple. Some lager aspects to it in taste and feel. I'd say it's a strong bourbon tasting beer with very little others tastes and very low other character.
Serving type: on-tap
