On tap at brewery while picking up BA Speedway. Nose is huge malty boozy rich sweet, like a gigantic barley wine. Chocolate and brown sugar. Taste is same. Not nearly as boozy though. Bit of metallic bite. Pulls saliva like a sour. Long rich sweetness. Really big beer. Good for a cold day.
On tap at Anvil & Stave. Dark brownish/amber with a small head. Aroma of malt, bourbon, caramel, some nuts and hints of vanilla. The body was on the soft side. A rather interesting one.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel woody bourbon aroma. Fruity malty woody caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty woody caramel finish with weak hints of vanilla. jbruner (4694) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with bubbly off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big barrel notes over a hint of toasty nut and dark malts. Taste follows, barrel is huge, impressive for a small abv beer. Balance is a little off, body is a little thin, but cool stuff, keeping the barrel aged there for people who don’t want high alcohol.

sample at the brewery, tough to balance all this sweetness in this one. Nuts, molasses, and vanilla dominate aroma, taste, and finish. charule (2257) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2016

On draft at the brewerry. Pours black with a tan head. Nutty aroma. Flavors of toffee and bourbon. Vanilla notes. Roast finish. blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Draft. Specifically noted as the 2016 vintage, and as "Bourbon Barrel Aged." Pours deep brown with a beige head. Nutty malts and chocolate sweet base, lighter bourbon barrel presence, some mild husky notes, and a nice quick finish. Not a ton of booze at all; very easy drinking.

Sample at Anvil & Stave. Dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patched of lacing on the glass. Oak, nuts and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of bourbon roasted malt and nuts. The finish is oaky and nutty with a subtle bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
