Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one at jmgrub's birthday tasting.

Pours a murky crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark malt, cocoa, and dark fruits. Taste is much the same with cocoa and mild bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the barrel aged presence is pretty mild all around.

Thanks to yourefragile for the assist.

Pours near black with a in light tan head and a bit of a collar. The nose has a bit of roast and chocolate plus a good dose of bourbon. Flavor is more bourbon heavy with chocolate and rot in the background. Really smooth medium body with good carbonation. Quite tasty.
