Bourbon, vanilla, oak, with molasses and rich caramel with hints of chocolate in the aroma. Pours murky brown with an off white head. Wow this is like a dessert in a glass, so rich, intense caramel with vanilla, oak, hints of bourbon, chocolatey with hints of dark cherries. Awesome!

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours a dark amber/chestnut brown color with a 1.5 finger beige head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.  Streaks of spotty lacing left behind. Nice barrel presence in the nose with dry oak, toasted coconut, vanilla and spicy bourbon.  Doesn’t overpower the base beer allowing sweet and roasted malt notes to come through.  Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and chocolate.  Slightly smokey but not acrid or burnt smelling.  Smells great! Medium bodied with a strong barrel character that adds another layer of flavor to the base beer.  Some dry oak along with silky vanilla, toasted coconut and a delicious spicy bourbon character.  Although the barrel flavors are strong, they are perfectly integrated into the flavor without overpowering the base beer.   Lots of excellent bourbon flavor but barely any heat making it deceptively drinkable.  Underneath the barrel, there is a nice combination of sweet and roasted malt notes.  Slightly smokey with hints of dark chocolate, toffee, caramel and oatmeal lingering into a somewhat dry finish.  Highly recommended!
