4/5  rDev -6.8%

500ml growler generously sent to me as an extra to replace the infected Rare DOS that was extra'd to me by Lawrence. Thanks again buddy! Shared with my wife and Doug today, 10/22/2013, poured into a Founder's snifter.

Pours a fairly solid brown body, quite opaque actually with a nice 1cm mocha head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving a placid brown body that doesn't really impress me here.

This might be one of the best smelling beers I've had the chance to smell. Smells like whiskey vanilla marshmallows. Doug was saying we should have air fresheners with that scent, although I'm sure the police wouldn't appreciate that. But in any case, there is a nice whiskey presence with a ton, and I mean a ton of caramel and toffee with a nice touch of vanilla. This is one of the best smelling beers I've had.

Flavour-wise, this is disappointing after what we smelled. Its a solid old/strong ale, reminding me of Kuhnhenn 4D, but not very complex. Its very toffee/caramel forward and that's about it. Not much barrel here, no whiskey either.

Mouthfeel is quite thin for an old ale yet alone stout. Its OK carbonation, but not very thick-bodied or creamy. Its not bad by any means though.

Disappointing especially after the high expectations that the nose lends. We got excited by how great this beer smelled, but the taste and body really disappointed. This doesn't hold up well to beers with similar profiles, like BB4D. I would say this is much better than Rare DOS but that's only because its infected. Still its a rather interesting BA Strong Ale that was extra'd so I won't complain. I'm glad to have had the chance to try it.

500 mL growler poured into a snifter. Graciously shared by Doug.

Appearance - Brown body with some reddish flecks. Nice off white head. Thick collar and lots of chunks.

Smell - Whiskey. Not like bourbon. Spicier and nuttier. Peatier too. Caramel and nutty malts.

Taste - Sharp whiskey flavor. Again, it's got a spicy flavor. Caramel malt. Very nutty. I'm amazed it doesn't have nuts added to it, really. Some chocolate, but it's got more of an emphasis on nutty brown malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. No carbonation issues. A little boozy.

Overall - This barrel is great. The beer is a little masked, but that doesn't bother me so much.

750 mL growler courtesy of robbiemoy13 pours a murky dark brown color with a fluffy tan head. Decent retention and lace.

Nose is Cocoa Krispies mixed with raisin-rum bread...alcohol, malt and fruit. Smells delightful.

Oh, this is nice! Coconut flavored rice with cocoa dust with some macadamia nut oily mouthfeel. This beer is awesome, ,love it. Great flavor, great mouthfeel - finished this off in record time, couldnt stop drinking it.
