12 oz stubby poured into rocks glass. Mostly clear brown body with red highlights and a tan head. Some retention and a bit of patchy lace. Barrel notes of bourbon and vanilla, roasty and caramel malts, a touch of chocolate. Taste is bready with caramel and roasted nuts, some vanilla and cocoa powder. A good balance between these sweet and bitter components. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy texture, bitter oak and roast finish.

12oz bottle dated 12/22/2014. Served in a snifter 2/18/2015.

A-Cola brown body, half finger offwhite head with average retention, spots of lacing.

S- Toffee, caramel, a bit of vanilla. Sweet brown ale base is present, mild smoky bourbon aromas. Some cereal graininess.

F- Mild bourbon flavours, a bit of oak, small amount of vanilla. Mostly toffee, a bit of coffee, plenty of caramel sweetness. It's a sweet beer, but the bourbon helps cut it a bit. The finish is a bit off with a non-descript astringency that isn't quite attributable to the bourbon.

M- Medium-thin bodied, OK carbonation, a bit sticky. Finish is cereal grains and that astringency, perhaps the combination of the cereal and the bourbon.

O- It's alright. A bit different than the other stuff on the market, but really nothing exceptional.

Murky brown with a nice foamy head. Nice nutty malt smell with just a hint of the barrel smell. Taste is normal malty nutty with a hop finish. I catch on to the vanilla which blends well with the bourbon. I am not a fan of this style, but I like this combination. This company keeps surprising me. The finish is extremely smooth. Do I detect cinnamon?
