Thanks to Tom for this one!

Slightly hazed reddish copper color, plenty of lacing, drippy crown of thorns pattern around the rim of the glass. Tiny micro sediment is visible suspended in the glass.

Aroma is big on caramel and vanilla, fairly sweet but pretty good.

Body is pretty light, but big on flavor. Huge malt, sticky on the lips, vanilla, and light booze as it warms up. Eh, sort of falls apart as it warms up. Worth a try but not the best.
Edit 11/16: this apparently won a medal at FoBAB... Wonder if it was a new batch or special barrel or something.

12oz brown bottle, sample from brewery.

This is a massive brew, creamy like a cordial yet there is some beery crispness even for its size. Big bourbon character on top of this strong ale, flavors seem to be balanced even if it is malt forward. Wood, vanilla, and brown sugar. Warming alcohol, dried plums, & toasted brew. Lots of flavor and again ... big but still easy to sip.

Shared by CaptainCougar at GT's going away tasting. Thanks Tom.

The beer is amber hued with a small, off white head. The aroma offers malt, vanilla, sweet fruits, alcohol. Fairly sweet with some butterscotch throughout. Bourbon character is mild. Pretty drinkable and certainly interesting. Worth a try.

Pours slightly hazed copper with a fluffy lasting head. Plenty of lacing sticks.

The smell is of bourbon/wood and caramel.

The taste is of strong bourbon, wood, booze. A vague fruitiness and toast balance some of the sweetness, though it remains sweet.

It has soft carbonation. The body is medium. A fuller body may cover the alcohol more. There is a certain amount of creaminess to it.

An amber ale with strong bourbon. A nice sipper of an amber ale blended with bourbon.

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.

Very rich and muddled....gooey caramel, toffee, vanilla...bourbon impression is not impressive.

Thought I was getting something along the lines of Rocky's Revenge from Tyranena but this lacks the barrle flavors of that one and is much boozier... Just noticed this is 10.2%.

It's OK..average....not one of the better bourbon barrel aged beers you'll find.
