Pours into a Town Hall Brewery globe on 6/19/11.
Pours a dark brown with a fizzy brown head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing at all. Swirling the glass leaves a sticky resin on the glass.
Smells of lots of boozy bourbon and dark malts as well as a little fruit and vanilla.
Taste is of bourbon infused dark malts and vanilla/chocolate fruits. Taste is pleasant but the booze is very present.
Mouthfeel is light to moderate in weight. Resin sticks to the mouth and leaves a nice bitter mocha booze flavor left over.
Overall this is a good brew but the alcohol can make it tough to enjoy not only because it smashes out some of the taste but also I can't have more then one 375mL before my senses are dulled by the high ABV. Good beer though.

Poured into my Gandhi-Bot snifter. Dark chocolate body with about a finger of mocha-colored head. Seemed a little thin on the pour, but still pretty good eye candy.
Some nice boozy notes in the nose. I suppose I'm getting a bit of apple, caramel, and raisin from the brandy barrel aging. Otherwise, some milk chocolate in there too. I enjoy how this smells.
Strong booziness. I think this beer would benefit from aging. I like big, boozy beers; but the booze here has overpowered the flavors the smell is teasing me with. As it warms, I do pick up some chocolate.
Mouthfeel is thinner than I'd like for a barrel-aged brew. I wish this were thicker and more syrupy.
This is pretty good. In the future, I think I'd like to buy one to age. You know, when I feel like spending $17 on a small beer again.
