Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great barrel aged presence all around.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
