Pour is black, with a nice thin mocha head. Bubbly around the edges. Smell is huge with dark fruit, toffee, bourbon, oak. Really potent aroma. The taste is bourbon and toffee right up front. It has the great toffee taste that love about Everett. You can tell the barrel doesn't totally disguise the base beer. Bourbon makes it's a little sweet, especially at the end. Not a lot of carbonation. Thin to medium mouthfeel. This is a great beer. Mouthfeel is the worst part, but the flavor and aroma make up for it.

500ml bottle poured into HF stemmed glass during the bottle share post HF's FOFA. Thanks to whoever was kind enough to give me a generous pour of this. This was one of the first beers I had during the bottle share (and the only one I will review). Reviewed from notes taken while drinking.

A- Pours a jet black that is opaque in the glass, a thin layer of light mocha brown head forms- much thinner then regular Everett, head recedes to a flat top leaving some light lacing.

S- Aromas of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, lightly sweet balanced bourbon, hints of oak. Fairly aromatic and very pleasant smelling.

T- Creamy rich coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, sweet extremely well integrated bourbon that complements the dark flavors exceedingly well. Easily one of the better barrel-aged beers I've had, the barrel lends a nice sweetness that complements the base beer adding a complexity while still retaining the great qualities of the base beer.

M- Creamy, silky smooth, fairly minimal carbonation but complements the style nicely, very drinkable.

O- This was another fantastic barrel-aged beer from HF that is easily on the same level of birth of tragedy, damon, etc. and stands up against some of the best barrel-aged porters out there. Despite being a couple years old this beer is holding up fantastically well. I'm not sure how many bottles are still out there, but this is definitely worth tracking down if possible.
