A: Pours a deep dark chocolate brown. Decent beige head for the style which quickly dissipates into a ring. Leaves a nice sticky lace.
S: Nice balance of both bourbon and brandy in the nose, with roasty coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, and fudge. Really intense and amazing.
T: One of the most amazingly complex and orgasmic beers I've ever had. You get all of the sweet flavors mentioned in the smell and they are complimented with plenty of brandy and a strong bourbon kick. Nice balanced heat.
M: In spite of being low on carbonation, this is very frothy and silky. It's got that thick motor oil viscosity of a great RIS, which I was surprised with due to it being a blend. It really does retain the best elements of both styles in the blend.
O: I'm a huge fan of dark barrel-aged beers, and I'd say this is one of my all-time favorites. It's a great winter sipper.

The beer comes in a dark black color.
The aroma has oak aging, medium amount of bourbon, with a lighter alcohol note, charred cherry wood, a tinge of fruitness.
The flavor follows of with charred wood in the front, lightly roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and bourbon. It tastes very much like a lighter version of BCBS. Alcohol comes through on the finish to clean off the palate.
A wonderfully delicious barrel aged brew.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.
A - Pours an inky black with a 3/4 of a finger chocolate colored head which evaporated quickly. Small clumps of lacing.
S - Intense aroma of bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisin, ash, anise, and chocolate. Smells amazing.
T - Incredibly rich and complex mix of chocolate, plum, oak, whiskey, vanilla, brandy, smoke, and black licorice. Date, prune and fig flavors come out as it warms. The tinniest hint of black cherry tartness in the mid palate. An soy sauce like element in the finish. (not a bad thing by any means) Woody bitterness and roast provides nice balance, but this is a sweet brew overall. ABV definitely noticeable but not overpowering. A slow sipper.
M - So full bodied, you almost need a knife and fork. Low carbonation. Velvety smooth. Coats the mouth, but manages to avoid being syrupy. Perfect for the style.
O - Complex and amazing. Thankfully, the bourbon flavors do not overpower the base beer. If sweeter strongly alcoholic beers are your thing, don't miss this one. Superb.
