Had this on tap at the Allentown Brew Works Beer Fest in 2009. The color was a dark amberish color with a thin white head along the top of the sampling glass.

Smelled like Bourbon and and has the taste of a nice rich Barley Wine. Lots of hops and malts in the beginning and a nice little alcohol burn at the end.

Mouthfeel was slightly thick and smooth. It went down pretty easy regardless of how strong the beer actually is.

From notes...
Much thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler.

Appears a semi-transparent, dark brown with a small, lighttan head that slowly fades into a mild cap. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of obvious bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and some notes of bitter hops pulling through as English Breakfast Tea.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a sugary, toffee-like flavor melding with the bourbon. Delicious!
Mouthfeel is full bodied, chewy, with toffee, and vanilla lingering along the palate.
