Servign Type - 22oz bottle

Appearance - Dark as night, thick like syrup. Monster thick 2 inch head that formed like it was a nitro beer. Nice sticky lacing.

Smell - Huge about of barrel aged bourbon. Vanilla, raisin, plum, smoked malts. Some dark chocolate and booze round this one out.

Taste - Wow, such a great balance of whiskey, malts and dark fruits. Big, bold yet very easy to enjoy. Lots of vanilla mixed with raisin, plum and grapes. Dark Chocolate adds a nice sweet and bold flavor. Strange I really don't get much coffee flavor. Malts are roasted, and just work perfect with this beer.

Mouthfeel - Malts, whiskey and vanilla really nail the tongue. Palate gets chocolate, dark fruits and remaining malts and whiskey. Aftertaste is malty, whiskey and vanilla with dark fruits.

Overall - Simply amazing. Incredible balance along with huge flavors yet everything is tied together so well. The malts and chocolate balance out the whiskey, and the fruits provide bitter flavors. Another world class beer from hoppin frog.

Poured into a Hoppin' Frog snifter.

A-Just deathly dark. A finger of a frothy mocha head with excellent retention. Great lacing on the glass. Really good-looking beer.

S- Smooth. Chocolate, roasted malts, bourbon. All the scents play together wonderfully. Nothing dominates giving this a really balanced nose.

T- Kill me now so I can die happy. I thought the nose was smooth... This beer goes down WAY too easy. So much dark chocolate and roastiness up front, then the barrel comes through and just washes everything down with a silky smooth alcoholic sweetness. Man, I'm impressed.

M- This is about as viscous of a beer as I've had to date. An unforgivingly thick and smooth beer. The flavors coat your mouth and just hang around. That's fine by me. They can stay as long as they'd like.

O- People need to keep their eye on Hoppin' Frog's "barrel program." They're doing some excellent BA beers, and this is the best so far. An amazing beer in the BA D.O.R.I.S. I liked the first one, but the bourbon barrel did wonders for this beer.
