On tap at the Bruery's 2nd Anniversary Party.
Appearance is that of a typical barrel aged stout, porter or old ale... Thick and dark, with almost no light coming through.
Smell is also of a typical barrel aged brew, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, oak, dark brown sugar and some dark fruits.
Taste is great as always. Alcohol heat comes through pretty quickly, but it's not overwhelming. Very sweet and tasty vanilla and sugar also coats your tongue throughout the whole sip.
Mouthfeel is typical. Thick, viscous and full. Slight carbonation to make the beer dance a bit on the tongue, but other than that... It's thick.
Drinkability, well... I had a few of these... But, they were small pours, if I had a pint glass or a whole tulip of this, I might think it wasn't too drinkable.
All in all, it was a tasty beer.
Serving type: on-tap

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #633.
Appearance - Deep amber. Nice khaki head. Medium collar.
Smell - Lots of bourbon. Sharp liquor aroma. Oak. Vanilla. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Slight oxidation.
Taste - Bourbon is first. Brown sugar. Oxidized flavors lend sherry and just a bit of cardboard, but I think it works really well. Bourbon comes back aggressively.
Mouthfeel - Immensely boozy. Medium carbonation. Sticky sweet.
Overall - This beer ages so nicely. Delicious.
