3 oz tap pour into a tasting glass at Vintage Brewing Co. in Madison, WI during Madison beer week.

A - Pitch black in the glass, the pour has a low but well-retained tan head for the booze content of this beer.

S - Roasted chocolate malt blends well with the rich bourbon and wood aroma that includes mellow hints of vanilla through the finish.

T - Thick, strong roasted chocolate malt and warm bourbon alcohol give the flavor a well-rounded and balanced potency.

M - Medium-full-bodied with a warming, smooth, robust texture that finishes mildly acrid bitter.

O - What a great barrel-aged RIS that's' well-balanced and nuanced, not over-the-top like a lot of barrel-aged beer seem to be as of late.

Black in color. Light tan head. No lacing. Aroma is mostly bourbon with some sweet vanilla and a touch of roast. Taste starts off with a bit of char, some chocolate, then the bourbon kicks in. Sweet, vanilla, and oak. Chalky. Raisin and port on the finish. But the finish is quick, too quick for an RIS. Heavier mouthfeel, but not thick or syrupy. Would actually expect a little more. Overall a decent BA beer, but no where near what the other ratings would suggest.
