Thanks to Robbie for this bottle. White Wax.
Poured in to snifter.

A - Black with a thin layer of mocha-brown head.

S - Chocolate fudge, charred oak and lighter bourbon and vanilla aromas with just a touch of roast coming through.

T - A huge charred oak presence dominates throughout and is complimented by a big roast profile, espresso and a piney hop flavour. An ashy flavour that is not off-putting at all, but is defintiely present. Not much bourbon or vanilla at all.

M - Medium body. Light carbonation.

O - There was a little too much oak in this one without the complimentary bourbon and vanilla notes that I expect from bourbon barrel again.

On-tap at the brewpub.

A: Black body with clear garnet highlights; thin ring of fine light brown bubbles. Average.

S: Nice mix of roasted coffee and barrel - vanilla, bourbon, and char. Some dark chocolate and anise, too. Good.

T: Bourbon up front, with spice, oak, and vanilla standing out. Roastiness toward the end, with lots of coffee. Huge, boozy finish. Raw bourbon-drenched oak on the aftertaste. Intense, and a bit unbalanced.

M: Initially slick, ultimately creamy, medium-full body. All right.

O: Pretty tasty, and very flavorful, but too boozy for 9% and just not terribly coherent. I expected better.

Cheers!
