750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass. 2013 bottle.

Appearance - Deep murky ruby body. Nice khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Bourbon is strong. Very oaky. Vanilla. Nutty malts. Smells a bit oxidized.

Taste - Sweet caramel. Nutty. Bourbon builds. Very oaky. Bitter in the back end. Oxidation is a mixture of sherry and bitter cardboard.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Well carbonated.

Overall - Fantastic barrel. The wood permeates and some oxidation goes a long way in this beer.
