A - Pours black as night (as it should be) with a medium, brown head. Not overly viscous.

S - Sweetness of the bourbon barrel, chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla.

T - Initial taste of standard BA BORIS, but with a much more pronounced bourbon flavor (not heat, just flavor).

M - This is where the PPW barrels shine. Silky, smooth. Slight boozy finish. Exceptional.

O - I'm a huge fan of BA BORIS, and the Van Wink version takes my appreciation for Hoppin' Frog to the next level. This beer is a show-stopper. If you a fan of BA RISs, this has to be on your must try list.

From bottle into 16 oz. snifter
