On tap. Pours a deep brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an interesting combination of coffee, barrel and dark grains with a bit of a booze bite. Flavor is similar with coffee up front but a weird finish of acidic dark grains.

Snifter pour at the Brass Tap, pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of lighht coffee, vanilla, oak and some malt. Flavors are oaky up front, light ash, no bourbon, and some light roast. Nice beer overall. As I burp I get a lot of vanilla coke.

On tap at the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC (unsure of the exact alcohol content but I had to enter something in order to add this beer to the database). Pours black with a light beige head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, coconut, and light coffee. Tastes of German chocolate cake, vanilla, and coffee. Surprisingly light alcohol taste given the barrel aging. Well done!
