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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Deep amber body. Medium off-white head. Lots of bourbon on the nose. Scotch ale comes through. Toffee. Butterscotch. Raisins. Wow, it's boozy. Strong bourbon. Booze. Toffee. Heavy oak. Dry finish. Heavy body. Boozy as hell. Tastes good, but I can't drink much of 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

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.

On tap for Beachwood Long Beach's Anniversary. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a dark crimson brown with reddish edges under a thin off-white head which fades quickly to the rim leaving trace spots.

N: Boozy, dark cherries, damp oak wood, sweetish bourbon, malty grains, fruity, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Crazy complex layers.

T: Sweet malty bourbon, oak, vanilla, slight char, lots of caramel, toffee. Wonderful balance.

M: Fully body and light carbonation. Sweetish bourbon and caramel finish.

O: Wonderfully complex and balanced. Warming. Should find a bottle.
