look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

12oz bottle poured into snifter.

Appearance- pours a very dark red brown, with a thin off white head which disappears very fast. Lacing is slim to none. 4.25

Aroma- strong bourbon nose, vanilla and oak are the major players here. Coconut and some dark fruits hang around the edges. Butterscotch is also heavily present. 5

Taste- tons of vanilla and coconut dominate the front of the tounge. Butterscotch and caramel hit about midway and linger for awhile. Dark fruit sweetness comes through in the aftermath. 4.75

Feel- thick and heavy, ABV feels big and is big but that's to be expected, coats plate and stays. 4.5

Overall- this and the BA Siberian Night have to become regular yearly releases. These beers are far to good to release once. This is quality. 4.75

A: Dark, almost like coca cola. No head whatsoever. in my snifter it almost looks like port.

S: Vanilla, oak, bourbon with a hint of smoke. Here come the malts, caramel, toffee. A port quality in here actually! anise, candied apricots. A sweetness that loosely reminds me of twizzlers. A touch of spice at the end. There is alot going on here. i could just sit here smelling it and enjoy myself OR I COULD DRINK IT!!

T: Candied figs. canilla. maple syrup and sugar cane. Bourbon on the end. A big nutty quality. roast on the end. Everything you smell comes through in the taste- and then some. This is a big complex beer that hides the booze fairly well.

M: Smooth. it sits on the tongue. warms you as you drink. medium bodied.

O: WOW. I'm impressed. there is a lot of interesting flavors and the bourbon barrels just amp everything up. great bourbon. its balanced. This is one of my favorite wee heavy's. If you can find it get it. you won't be disappointed!!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours almost a golden brown in color that appears dark brown in the glass. Almost no head to speak of.

S - Good amount of smooth bourbon, vanilla, oak, molasses, and heavy on the malt. Very great blend here.

T - Incredibly smooth bourbon taste up front, moves into vanilla, molasses, and dark fruits. Very nice finish with just a tinge of bitter hop.

M - Very, very smooth. Well carbonated.

Overall - Superb BBA Wee Heavy here. Right up there with the very best of them.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

12oz bottle into a snifter. No bottling date.

Pours a dark brown color with a red hue when held up to the light. Very mild head. Smell is extremely nice. Bourbon upfront and vanilla on the back end. Not overpowering, just right. Taste is amazing. Sweet whiskey flavor with vanilla and caramel and sweet chocolate all mixed in together. Alcohol is not present at all (except for the fact that your mind relates whiskey to alocohol i suppose.) Drinkability is insane. Being 12% ABV is a crime. You could honestly GUZZLE this beer its so easy drinking. Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall this is the best wee heavy that I have ever had. So smooth and delicious, at $7.99 per bottle i wasnt going to pull the trigger but an employee was raving about it, so i gave it a shot. WOW. i was not disappointed. Going to be picking up a 4 pack of this despite the heavy price tag. It's that good.
