look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some transparency. Decent khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Oak and some fruity notes. Vanilla. Some chocolate.

Taste - Sweet up front. A lot of brandy flavors. Fruity malts. Chocolate is secondary. A little roasty at the end.

Mouthfeel - It's boozy up front, but dies down as the barrel flavors subside. Medium body.

Overall - A little boozy, but otherwise an approachable BA beer.

Bottle shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris!

The beer is dark brown, approaching black. Thin, tan head with minimal lacing. The aroma brings roast, oak, vanilla, dark fruits, spice. Lots of flavor. Very potent. An almost tannic aspect from the oak barrels. An unorthodox flavor and a bit different than what I had expected, though by no means in a negative way. Some alcohol heat in the finish, but this seems to have calmed down quite a bit based on reviews early this year. A solid beer from an outstanding brewery.

Bottle shared by Jason. Served in a snifter of some sort.

A - Tan foam settles to wisps, thin collar, and minimal lacing. Dark brown, opaque, near-black body.

S - Vanilla, hot bourbon, spicy oak, roast, anise, and dark breads. Very low sweetness, and some serious alcohol heat.

T - The taste thankfully isn't as boozy, with nice notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, oak, and whiskey. I actually enjoyed the flavor quite a bit, as the vanilla from the barrel-aging balances some of the harsher bitterness I noticed in the base beer.

M - Chewy, medium-full body, roasty and dry texture, and lower carbonation. Some definite alcohol warmth, but not as rough as the aroma.

D - Once you get past the harsh alcohol in the aroma this is actually quite nice. It's quite a bit different from the usual 3 Floyds barrel-aged offerings; I'm really curious what barrel was used here. Best enjoyed in small quantities, but may improve with 6-12 months in the bottle.
