Live review. Poured from the 1 pint, 6 oz. bomber bottle that I bought at Save-On Tobacco & Beverage a week or so ago into a clean, clear Voodoo Brewery pint glass. There is no remaining price tag and I do not recall the price. No observed "best by" date either.
A Dark copper/amber translucent body under a nice, 1.5 inch very light brown creamy head after a vigorous pour (a gentle pour was leaving no head initially). Good look. 4.0
S Sweet malt and "Christmas" spices under a Whiskey canopy. Very little hops detected here. Smells delicious. 4.0
T Big, sweet beer with all of the qualities detected in the smell. Big malt sweetness, "Christmas" spices under the influence of the whiskey. It is an interesting, very big beer. 4.5
M As mentioned, this is one big beer with big sweet malt which is syrup like in its size and scope. 4.0
D/O Drinkability is actually pretty good for such a big beer and elevated ABV (to 8.6% mind you). Overall this is a fine beer. 4.5

22 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial pint glass
A - It is rust colored with amber highlights. A skim of tan head is all that graces the top.
S - It smell like the spices have faded and vanilla has replaced them. It definitely has a bourbon smell.
T - The barrel aging has definitely changed it. The spices are virtually gone. It almost tastes like a barrel aged wee heavy. There are lots of malt and bourbon.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - I think the regular Frosted Frog is good. I think the barrel aged is really good. I really like its similarities to a barrel aged wee heavy.
