Incredibly dark for a wee heavy - near pitch black but ruby as well, like a black barleywine.

Rich aroma of earthy, herbal, raw oak barrel. A little leather-oak tannin, some very slight meaty smoke as well. Nice bourbon whiskey comes second. Chocolate, caramel and toffee malt. Similar on the taste - very rich, intense but well-integrated barrel that is not over-powering of the base beer, dry oak finish.

Fantastic beer - not sure it's a wee heavy, more like a barleywine but regardless it's a top notch barrel aged strong ale. I did prefer the eagle rare, but not by much.

Bomber poured into a matching Voodoo barrel room collection snifter. The brew appears a dark brown to nearly black color with a few bubbles of head that fades quite quickly. Some spotty lace clings to the glass.

The way this brew smells is totally perplexing and downright concerning. It is like stink bait you would put on your hook to go out catfishing...ya know, the type of strange concoction of chopped liver, spoiled stinky cheese and decaying beef products. If you can ignore the strange decay smell, there are notes of caramel, vanilla, toffee and molasses also present.

The taste fortunately brings forth none of that stinkbait flavor. It is boozy with hints of raison, somewhat oxidized with caramel, vanilla and a solvent booziness. A bit of faint chocolate and molasses come out more in the finish.

This is a medium to full bodied brew. A very nice take on a barrel aged wee heavy. My only gripe with this is the off-putting nose. I have no idea what would cause a beer to smell this terrible but taste amazing.

look: 2 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep murky brown. Pond-water murkiness. No head. A few bubbles in the collar.

Smell - Brighter bourbon aroma than the Eagle Rare. Less oak and vanilla, more liquor. Brown sugar.

Taste - Brown sugar. Sharp bourbon and oak. Deep caramel. Vanilla sustained in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and boozy. Low carbonation.

Overall - Very similar to the Eagle Rare version. Really boozy, though.
