look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased at Beachwood BBQ and Brewery in Long Beach, CA.

This pours a mostly clear light brown, with basically no head or lacing- looks to be very uncarbonated.

Smells like heavy duty bourbon, bitter boozy and fruity, with peat, toffee, and dark fruit.

This is seriously barrel heavy- there's an almost overwhelming level of bourbon here, lots of oak, with a dope vanilla character. This almost feels like it was scotch barrel aged with how peaty it is. There's some slick caramel and brown malt.

This is very boozy- it's a slow supper. The carbonation level is quite low.

This is a bruiser- it's tough to drink but it's worth it.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- deep ruby brown, small bubble white head, reduces to ring around the edge

S- sweet caramel/toffee mixed with roasted malt, spicy bourbon and woody oak

T- sweet caramel and melted toffee up front, followed by woody bourbon barrel, hints of fig and raisin, the finish is more caramel that lingers long after consumption with hints of bourbon sticking around

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel that turns creamy into the finish

O- caramel/toffee mixes with undertones of bourbon and oak, very good

This beer is fantastic!
Had on draft & bottle.
Really smooth barrel presence but the malt back bone is still able to shine thru. I think the base for this is best representation of a beer featuring non hoppy profile. Vanilla & caramel float through the palate, slight bourbon still thru nasal cavity.
This beer is a treat to say the least!

Dark mahogany in color. Vanilla, toffee, sweet malt, brown sugar, marshmallow and oak. Super smooth, lower carb with a medium mouthfeel. Medium short, dry finish. Real good.

Enjoying it in a tulip glass.

L: Dark brown, light head.
S: Malty, light barrel character.
T: This is where it shines, malty with a light barrel character. Vanilla, caramel, bready malt.
F: Nice amount of carbonation, just right. Not too sweet or heavy either.
O: Excellent beer, I would buy a case of this if I could.

Large shared bottle.
Wow, this is really great. A relatively heavy load of bourbon and bourbon barrel flavors but these are of exceptional quality and blend nicely with the other components.
Smooth medium body.
Alcohol is evident bit seems much lower than 12 due to the mildly warm feel and smoke bourbon flavor.
Highly recommended.
