Draft at brewery. Black and brown head. I do not like this as much as I like the regular Inertia. The bourbon barrel imparts lovely wood and vanilla, and that is nice but strips the beer of its innate character. Boozy and happy, and those who love barrel will like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black color with frothy but persistent brownish head. Mild aroma of roasted nuts, vanilla, wood, whiskey. Smooth mouthfeel; lean and good chocolate flavor, moderate sweetness, some vanilla and tobacco; correct bitterness.
Balanced, elegant and very appreciated.

On tap at Central City Winter Cask Fest. Best of the batch. Different than at Brassneck? Pours black with dark tan head. Aromas of vanilla, light bourbon alcohol, and roasted malts. Flavors are similar and rich: oak/vanilla and chocolate. Nice balance - bourbon is just right and not an overkill like many others. If this good on tap, wonder what a bottled version would taste like?

On tap at Brassneck, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of roasted malt, fairly heavy bourbon, though it is not apparent that this is Jack Daniels. Flavour is still pretty heavy on the roasted malt, followed by intense Jack, and some alcohol. Pretty intense, but the choice of barrels don’t make for an optimal barrel aging experiment. A little harsh and not as enjoyable as the base beer. Still, great stuff.
