On tap at the Barrel House -- served in a snifter.

A - deep, deep, deep red; vinous, like a pinot noir, save for the carbonation. No head to speak of and very thin, tan lacing around the edges.

S - bourbon dominates the nose, followed by vinous grapes (reminiscent of pinot noir), a port-like sweetness, figs, dates, wood, and hints of vanilla and spice.

T - potent, tannic red wine -- pinot noir or cabernet sauvingon. Bourbon makes its presence known, though never overwhelmingly so, followed by a hint of vanilla; the cinnamon is faintly present in the backend, along with other spices. The vanilla and cinnamon become more perceptible as the beer warms, transforming it from a dry red to a port.

M - fair amount of carbonation, which is good, as it would've been syrupy otherwise. Full-bodied.

D - considering its similarities to wine, it's incredibly drinkable. Quite possibly the most complex, most exquisite, best beer I've ever had. Perfection.

The best beer in the world. Sour bourbony vanilla dark ale. More complex than a lot are capable of. People saying this beer isn't good is like a 4 year old saying Chopin isn't good. You won't be disappointed if you appreciate the brewing, blending and souring process.
