This beer is a work of art, or maybe a work of science, or of brewmaster wizardry.
Of the five BA beers I had at Town Halls' BA Week, this stood out the most.
Remarkable combination of cocoa/chocolate, fruit, bourbon, and more typical ale components. This is the most aromatic beer I've ever had ... mostly chocolate to the nose, with a little bourbon.
The taste is really a great balance of flavors. I liked the way the bourbon barrel was just one component of the mix, and didn't dominate the flavor profile. I loved the bourbon part of the beer, but I loved even more the way the chocolate and fruit and general ale flavors were in perfect harmony with each other, along with the bourbon.
Lovely mouthfeel. TH was serving all these BA beers pretty cold to start, so the more leisurely you can drink this, the more you'll get the fuller taste that comes with slightly warmer temperatures.
What a great beer. Reason enough to schedule a visit to Minneapolis for 2015's Barrel Aged Week.

Caramel dark brown. Tan head.
Flavor profile: wow. Huge dose of Belgian chocolate. Caramel, toffee, vanilla, and cocoa. I don't know what kumquat tastes like, but there is a fruit flavor present. Butterscotch as well. The bourbon is very flavorful and doesn't add any heat. It just smooths the beer out. Belgian yeast flavors.
Mouthfeel: smooth, warming, creamy. Medium bodied. Ends clean.
Overall, this was one of the best beers th has made. Absolutely incredible flavors. Very drinkable. Can't believe how well this one turned out to be.

This sounds very interesting. Pumped to try.
Served with a finger of tan head that recedes to a rather thin layer in a town hall tulip/snifter.
Smell is decidedly chocolate. Wow. Amazing. Sweet Belgian chocolate that has a bit of that added flavor aroma you get from chocolate syrups like Hershey's. There is just a hint of sweet citrus and Belgian fruitiness here too.
Taste is also fantastic. Big chocolate flavor with hints of citrus-I guess the kumquats. Some Belgian yeastiness here too.
Mouthfeel is fairly smooth not a big bodied beer. Dry finish. Fairly low carbonation.
Overall this is a damn tasty brew as the beer warms more of the barrel aged quality comes out. Would love to try a non barrel version of this one. The base beer is super.
