Part of a special "barrel" week at The Beer Junction. $4.00 for a 4oz pour, listed as 12.5% ABV. Deep, rich brown color. Sweet aroma, like maple syrup. Flavor was potent! Alcohol in your face. It was a total palate wrecker. Viscosity was thin-syrupy, low carbonation. Sweet aftertaste. There were particles of something left in the glass. Not sure if it was from the beer or the draft line. No lace left. This was part of a 4 beer sampler (all barrel aged) and I would say it came in 4th but that is because they were all pretty dang good. Definitely not bad and worth a try.

12.7 oz bottle poured into a Snifter.

A: Dark black charcoal color absolutely no head

S: Toffee, Caramel, Bourbon, and a resounding sweet brandy smell

T: Initially starts off sweet with the taste of brandy then the caramel and toffee tastes come in then rounds off with a little hint of chocolate that stays in your mouth. Surprisingly due to the chocolate being the last taste you get the after taste is very pleasant

M: Smooth and very light for such a strong beer, goes down easier than most beers this strong/big. Very light carbonation!

O: Although it is very expensive I would purchase it again it is a good once and a while type beer. It is very pleasant and has many of the qualities that I enjoy in beers. I know the expense of this beer is a big deterrent to many people but in my opinion because it exemplifies the qualities that i look for in big beers, good palatability, good taste, not a bad mouthfeel, and wonderful complexity that isn't overwhelming I will certainly be recommending this beer to others and purchasing it again.

Found last one on a shelf at Bin Ends in Braintree MA. I have been looking for this one for awhile and it didn't disappoint. The aroma is of brandy, bourbon and vanilla and taste mirrors that. It is black with no head and very little carbonation.This beer in my opinion was absolutely perfect in every way, I seriously loved this one and so glad I finally found it.
