500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black, not inky. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Not a lot of barrel. Some though. Vanilla and oak. Secondary bourbon. Chocolate.

Taste - Better. More bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Slightly fruity finish. Chocolate and some nuttiness and oak.

Mouthfeel - Nice chewiness. More than I expected. A touch of booze.

Overall - Pleasantly surprised by this. Not the best barrel, but it seems like a really good beer behind it.
