Dark brownish black beer with brown on the edges and an off-white head. It smells of hard malts and some bitter wood and hops. This must be dryhopped or something on the end because it has a really hoppy finish on top of all the other roasted malts and dark fruits. It's actually quite nice but a load to drink. Bought myself a six pack after trying it on tap.

12 oz. bottle from West Richland Beer and Wine, poured into Delirium Tremens tulip 3.6.10.

Deep mahogany body, not clear, one finger light tan body, medium dissipation with a thin layer of head covering the top of the brew. The nose is malt dominated, caramel, with vanilla notes present, little hop odor. Taste is pretty sweet up front, with some fruity esters (cherries, raisins), not very bitter, this beer really mellowed out from barrel aging. The hops start to shine in the finish, but do not overwhelm the complex malt bill. The mouthfeel is fairly effervescent and not too sticky for the sweetness. A bit boozy tasting to be real drinkable, not sure I'd try to do multiple bottles in one sitting, and the taste re hops certainly benefit from warming up a bit. I certainly prefer this to regular Bastard, very smooth and quite tasty.
