Poured into a goblet.

A: Barely jet black with a thin head that dissipated quickly

S: Pretty good on the smell. Dark Chocolate, Cocoa, caramel with some bourbon barrel notes.

T: Here is where it falls flat. Bourbon barrel dominates the flavor. I soaked American oak in bourbon, the remaining over-oaked whiskey reminds me a lot of this beer. The barrel flavor intensifies as it warms.

M: Thin body, dry finish. Doesnt hold up the spirit flavors well.

O: I would like to taste this beer after the barrel flavors start to mellow out. I would buy this beer again just to cellar it for a year or two. For a BBARIS, this is kind of a let down.
