4.01/5 rDev -6.7%
A - Opaque dark brown. Pours with minimal head that quickly dissipates to almost nothing.
S - Not alot going on out of the fridge, and not alot going on as it warms up. A mild bourbon and brandy in the smell with alcohol coming through. Smells sweet.
T - Tastes better than it smells. Still plenty of brandy and bourbon, but now a little faint vanilla and chocolate show up.
M - Silky smooth mouthfeel with and little tingly alcohol finish. If there's such a thing as a balanced mouthfeel, this one has it. I just started doing reviews of the individual pieces and parts of beers, so I can't say I've get the perfect informed perspective on mouthfeel, but this is damn outstanding.
O - Good but not great offering. Not enough going on with the smell and the taste to give it high marks overall. The barrels kind of overwhelm the base beer.

4.14/5 rDev -3.7%
12.7 ounce bottle - $14.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Gurgles out an inky, blank body with a smallish, but dense, dark tan head.
Smell: Blended malts leaning towards roasted with noticed inclusions of the sublime bourbon and brandy barrel aging. Bittersweet chocolate, nutty sweet syrups. Heavy on the dark fruits.
Taste: Roasty maltiness, dark chocolate fudge, a spoonful of maple syrup. A few flecks of char. Blend of the robust brandy and bourbon notes. Deep dark fruitiness, prunes and dates. Splash of tawny port. Low hint of anise. A little perceived saltiness precedes the soft, roasty, chocolaty finish followed by lingering warmth and sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel.
Overall: Let us all enjoy the wonder of Deliverance Ale!
