12oz bottle received as an extra from awesome all-around BA maximun12.

Relatively clear, maple syrup-colored elixir poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter. Rock steady off-white, full finger head. Plenty of lacing.

Caramel, toffee, vanilla and hint of bourbon.

Wonderful compilation. Nice toffee malt and vanilla at the forefront, smooth bitterness and bourbon at the end.

Medium body, almost slick, well carbonated.

Well done, one to seek out.

12oz bottle into a Gandhi-Bot tulip.

A: A high, straight pour produces only a thin wisp of tan foam atop the clear, deep orange-brown body. What head there is forms a thin but solid ring; no lace. Ok.

S: Rich toasty malt, solid toffee, charred oak, mild bourbon, and vanilla. Pleasant and balanced.

T: Sweet toffee and vanilla up front, with oaky bourbon and moderate booziness on the finish. Excellent at first, but ultimately just a bit too hot for a 70% barrel-aged brew. Still great, but not as great as it promised at first.

M: Creamy, well-carbonated medium-full body. Great.

O: Excellent beer, but I wish they hadn't cut the barrel-aged portion. I could have dealt with significantly more barrel presence, and a more central bourbon character would have made the booziness far more palatable. Still delicious, but oh how great it could be.
