look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark Ruby Red with a creamy brown head.

S: Earthy, malty nose with dark fruit notes.

T: Vanilla, oak, caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar, bourbon, full bodied, smooth, 12% alcohol only detectable through warming/burning in the chest, maybe a slight hint in taste.

M: Full bodied, somewhat harsh carbonation/alcohol astringency.

O: Really good, but I'd take most of the other barrel aged FW beers over this, if not all.
