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.
