look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bomber poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Batch/Cases: 001/999; Bottle Date: 3/6/12)

A: Nice minimal tan head with a deep dark brown body that is close if not pitch black.

S: Excellent smell on the swirl. Lots wood and bourbon notes. Lots of scents but they are all quite sweet smelling. Quite a lot of raisin and roasty notes as well.

T: WTF is that flavor!? It's so "sweet" that it almost gets you to pucker as if it is tart/sour. I almost don't want to take another sip to fully detail out the experience. I got that shiver that you get when you are trying to eat/imbibe something bad that you don't want to but kind of have to. So, after that all that I guess I am warming up to it a little bit. It seems that the pucker is from an actual bit of tart/sour/funk. It gets much better the more you drink though. Lots of raisin. It really tastes like a syrupy cola, it makes me think that this is what the stuff in the box for the fountain soda (the syrup) would taste like. It really tastes more like a wine (which my mother said).

M: It is a bit thin but comes across as syrupy with just a prickling of carbonation.

O: This is a very surprising beer starting off. It comes on strong and then settles down as your palate adjusts and comes to terms with what you are drinking. I wasn't expecting the tart/sour notes, which is confusing coming with the strong, sweet notes of a BA stout. This sure is one funky beer. It's good but surprising and not another one I would go out of my way to acquire again. However, I wonder what it would be like with a fair amount of age on it.
