I am drinking a bottle tthat hit the streets a little over a year ago.
A: Brilliant amber to light copper, 1” tan foam collar that hugs the glass.
S: Traces of bourbon, vanilla, earth, malt.
T: Caramel, bourbon, drark dried fruit, traces of vanilla, a little sherry late in the finish. Even after a year in the bottle, no big oxidized flavors.
F: Very creamy, medium full boey and hmedium high carbonation.
O: A very nice bourbon barrel aged amber ale that those who want something other than a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout should seek out.

Pours a frothy, tan head. Soft, sweet malt aroma with vanilla notes. Starts with a really sweet, Doppelbock-esque flavor. Builds into a really nice sweet maltiness with a touch of bourbony vanilla. Finish is malt with a touch of vanilla.

Wow. This is pretty fantastic. It's like a Doppelbock and amber ale had a baby that was put in a bourbon barrel.

Poured at 49°F from a 12oz bottle (dated 05Feb15) into a Mikasa ale glass.
LOOK: Pours with a quarter fingers worth of off-white foam that shrivels into a line after 15 seconds. Dark amber in color. There is a very subtle amount of small rising bubbles. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Strong caramel aromas are backed by mild aromas of figs, molasses, and raisins along with subtle aromas of vanilla, toasted malts, bourbon, and hints of oak.
TASTE: Very strong caramel flavors strike the palate at first and are immediately followed by mild flavors of vanilla, molasses, figs, and raisins. Mild toast, subtle bourbon flavors, and hints of spicy and earthy hops (weren't detected in the smell) enter lastly as caramel flavors fade to mild, but vanilla, molasses, fig, and raisin flavors grow slightly stronger.
FEEL: Full-bodied and moderately carbonated. Goes down somewhat smooth, yet very creamy. It nearly has a syrupy feel as it goes down. Finishes with a moderate dryness.
NOTE: My first bourbon barreled Amber. This was incredible. It was extremely sweet, almost to the point of cloying. The bourbon was subtle, which I also loved. I can see how this would displease others, but for someone with a massive sweetooth such as I, it was perfect.
