Poured into a snifter. Pours a cloudy ruby color with only a ring of tan bubbles that leave mild lacing. Vanilla and caramel with a bit of alcohol on the nose, very typical notes for a bourbon barrel aged beer. The nose is very bold and pleasing though. Taste is very sweet with a minimal amount of heat finishing it up. Very think and creamy mouthfeel on this one, and the vanilla flavor finishes this one up nicely.
Overall: I have had this one in the past, and not only did this beer get me into barrel aged beers, but it also got me into bourbon. The barrel aging makes a huge impression on this one, and it's not for those that steer clear of that type of thing. For those that like that though, this is one of the best BA beers out there.
