650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Deep caramel. Milk chocolate. Banana, but not a phenolic aroma.

Taste - Strong bourbon and a little bit of that banana. Lots of oak. Oak becomes very intense, actually. Chocolatey.

Mouthfeel - Very oaky. A little boozy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - The banana fruity element adds a nice dimension, but otherwise it's totally dominated by the barrel.

Had on tap at the brewery.
A: Pours brown with little head.

S: Bourbon and roasted malt.

T: Very nice bourbon and malt upfront followed by light coffee and a hint of vanilla. Small amount of hop bitterness in the finish. The initial taste of this is very good, but it thins out way to quickly.

M: Thin for the style and below average carbonation.

O: If it did'nt thin out so fast, this could be a very good beer.

Pours an opaque black with very little tan head. The nose is faint with the bourbon and wood forward, some sweet dark fruits and light chocolate cake. The flavor is more rich in chocolate cake, the bourbon is soft and nicely integrated, but the finish is thin and a bit empty. The body isn't bold enough to hold the barrel age but the favors are quite nice until they thin out.
