Awesome, awesome bottle sent by dope, split into Deschutes tulips with my brothers.
A: Nearly opaque black with caramel-colored highlights...a good amount of tan head caps the beer and leaves behind some lace...little bit of alcohol legs as well.
S: Subtle smoke and brown sugar, molasses, hints of oaky vanilla and bourbon and deep dark caramel...hints of leafy hop and dark fruitiness as well...
T: More cocoa and chocolate emerge on the palate to complement the aromas...bourbon and vanilla and oak...brown sugar, molasses, even some licorice...light hoppiness is apparent and the sweetness isn't overwhelming...more Baltic notes of smoke and malt, and the bourbon is moderate. Pretty balanced for a BA beer, with a coffee-like dry finish.
MF: Not quite full bodied or viscous, a solid medium body with a creamy mouthfeel that hides the 10% very well.
O: Its a good, good Baltic, one of my favorites. No reason not to try this if you can get it.

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead taster. Thanks BobZ.
Pour: Nearly pitch black, with a touch of deep brown mixed in. Nice finger os khaki, foamy head. Head recedes to a rim and leaves a little bit of lacing.
Smell: Big roasted malts, bourbon, and toasted oak up front. Almost a spicy coffee aspect. Lots of chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, and coffee throughout the nose.
Taste: Follows the nose with roasted coffee, bourbon, milk chocolate, and dark raisins. Sticky, but not overly sweet. The bourbon character provides a nice heat, but is very integrated into the chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruit flavors of the base beer. Finishes sticky with toffee, chocolate, and bourbon.
Mouthfeel: Lightly spicy, which is interesting and lends a level of complexity. Quite sticky, but as previously stated, never too sweet. Nice bourbon heat throughout.
Overall: This beer was even more impressive than the ABCS had before it. Delicious.

2013 vintage aged in Willet barrels, poured into a snifter
A- pours dark brown, nearly black with a small fizzy light-tan head that reduces quickly, leaving nothing behind
S- lots of bourbon on the nose with big notes of vanilla, chocolate & caramel, charred oak, licorice. Pretty bourbon forward overall with chocolate mixed in
T- roasted chocolaty malt base mixes with big vanilla flavors and toasted oak, molasses, & caramel malt. Big bourbon hit near the finish with more chocolate
M- medium-viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy, slightly chewy mouthfeel and a warming finish
O- really liked the bourbon/vanilla notes, drinks pretty easy for 10%, I enjoyed this much more than the coffee version

it says barrel aged not bourbon barrell aged but who knows. jet black with a mocha head. sludgey looking consistency. Faint bourbon notes with lots of woodynotes, vanilla and oak, caramel, chocolate and coffee.
Wow! What the hell is this thing? It's damn delicious is what it is. Sweet bourbon notes up front with decadent chocolate malts runs into oaky barrel notes and finishes suprisngly bright and fruity. Huge thick body rolls over the tongue nicely. How did they get these deep bourbon barrel flavors to mesh with this bright fruity finish. One of the best beers i've ever had! 10%? Where? I think it may have to do with where they got the bourbon barrels from as the bourbon flavor is unlike anything i've ever had.
