Had on tap at Pat’s Tap. L: Brilliant chestnut crowned by a ½” tan tinted cream colored foam collar. S: The aromas are not huge but contain traces of chocolate, caramel, bourbon and vanilla. T: Starts nutty sweet with dark sugars, a hint of vanilla and caramel then bourbon, drying with a bitter emphasis on the end. F: Fine soft carbonation, medium to medium full body. O: A flavorful bourbon barrel aged beer with a nice creamy body.

Poured from the bottle as a transparent ruby with scant head. The aroma is not strong but is roasty sweet with the slightest hint of oak. The taste follows but with the addition of black coffee and then smooth unsweetened chocolate. The bourbon barrel aged character is subtle but comes out more as the beer warms but remains in perfect balance.

Overall, this is one of the best bb aged beers that I've had. The oak, vanilla and bourbon notes remain as components of the taste profile rather than dominating the taste.

Pretty standard for a brown. Maybe a little lighter in flavor than most. Light in carbonation. I would prefer a touch more, but similar to most browns.
