A - nice dark coloration with a one inch tan head. Good but not great lacing.

S- great aroma of cocoa, peppers, cinnamon & brown sugar...don't get much bourbon

T-amazing...The balance on this beer is perfect. Every smell and flavor are all equal. The bourbon is very nice yet not overpowering. Get nice cinnamon, brown sugar, cocoa with a little vanilla. Then at the end you get the peppers.

M - mouthfeel is very nice with good carbonation.

O- This is only behind a couple of ba stouts for me. I can't wait to have it again.

Big thanks to Sean for sharing these. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

A - They all looked kind of the same. Tan foam that settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and specks of lacing. All are very dark brown, revealing coloration when held to the light.

S - Nate says Almond Joy, and that's a pretty accurate assertion. Loads of coconut and vanilla from the barrel, with some fruity whiskey, oak, and perhaps a whiff of alcohol. Base beer imparts notes of chocolate and light cinnamon. Barrel is quite assertive here, but it presents a lot better than a number of other Jack Daniel's brews I've had.

T - The taste is quite excellent, with a blend of caramel, milk chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and mild chile flavor and spiciness. Booze and whiskey recede a bit, making it quite enjoyable to sip on.

M - Smooth, medium body that seems a bit lighter than the Red Wine version, Pleasant carbonation, with light residual stickiness. Not overly oaky, which is a surprise considering the intensity of the barrel-aging.

D - This was really excellent. I'm always wary of Jack Daniel's barrel-aged offerings but this was a winner. Hopefully Westbrook makes more of these beers; they've got some serious kill.
