A bit hot in the aroma but otherwise damn near perfect. The only other example of this kind of a stout / barleywine blend I've had was Before the Dawn by Steel Toe which was also phenomenal. This is like its big brother.

Incredible dark fruit, chocolate notes, lots of barrel. Mouthfeel is perfect, thick and creamy.

Lots of flavor in this. Good alcohol burn. Super smooth, very little carb, above medium mouthfeel and thickness. Big caramel and dark fruits(dried cherry, fig, raisin). Short finish. Decently complex. Yum.

The beer comes in a reddish brown copper.

The aroma has huge amounts of sweet sherry, bourbon, dark fruits, dried dates and plums, oak, and rich caramel brown sugar sweetness.

The flavor follows with that sweetness up front. Notes of sherry or port are quite prominent. The beer is smooth and sweet of caramel sugar of BB4D, but there are also touches of roast and chocolate that balance the brew out. Oak and vanilla finish the beer.

A hugely complex beer that drinks like a dessert liqueur.
