look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.
A - Pours a dark brown with a single finger of tan head. The head dissipates quickly leaving a fine lacing that lasts. Tipping the glass leaves a long lasting coating with legs.
S - Very malty, with bourbon, chocolate, booze and a slight amount of hops on the finish.
T - Sweet and malty with bourbon, vanilla and a slight amount of marshmallow.
M - Thick. Coats the mouth well with almost no carbonation. Enough alcohol to numb the tongue a little.
O - Outstanding. A very nice blend of ales by an outstanding brewery. Highly recommended.

Pours a scrappy black with small off white head

Aroma- dark fruits, fig newtons, coconut, vanilla, oak, bourbon

Taste- follows nose with fig newton, caramel, oak barrel, molasses, bourbon, vanilla. Like a roastier barleywine

Feel- seems a big thin for this big of a beer, rich, sweet

Pretty awesome, not like a lot o beers or there
