Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours jet black with a thick, brown head that sticks around for a long time for such a high gravity beer. The beer has visible tiny bubbles rising in the beer. The aroma is of bourbon with oak and vanilla. I also get some chocolate and coffee in the aroma. It smells wonderful. The most impressive part of this beer has to be in the flavor and mouthfeel. The bourbon does not overpower this, but adds a nice accent to the flavors. I also get the oak, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, dark malt, and the alcohol. That can't be escaped with a large beer like this, but it's not exceptionally overpowering. The mouthfeel deserves high marks. It is very smooth the moderate carbonation helps this beer drink very easily. It's not heavy in the body at all and I don't feel like I'm chewing this beer. Then again, Old Rasputin has a great mouthfeel as well. Why wouldn't the barrel aged version have it? This is an excellent beer.

In a tulip glass the beer was black in color with a medium-sized tan head. There was a smattering of lace.

Wonderful aroma. Both dark and sweet chocolate, coffee. A little vanilla. A lot of booze.

The taste personified the aroma. Sweet chocolate/cocoa, dark chocolate. Bitter coffee. Big booze.

This was a full-bodied beer meant to be sipped. The alcohol is right there, but in a complimentary way.

I loved this beer!
