A dark shade of brown with a hint of gray to it. Forms just the faintest bit of creamy head that just dissipates as quickly as it forms. Appears flat. Between the gray-brown color, this isn't the prettiest of beers.
Aroma on the other hand is quite pleasant: Strong scent of vanilla, followed up by oak, dark malts, molasses, and raisin. Tastes offers similar qualities, but is much punchier. Starts off with a strong bourbon character with notes of sweet toffee, floral vanilla, dark malts and touch of woodsiness (presumably from the fenugreek).
Full bodied - almost syrupy - with lower carbonation levels. Very mild bitterness, though there is a bit of an astringency on the back end.
An impressive BA beer. Very nice.

Batch #75. 12oz bottled poured into a snifter.

A: Super dark with a tan, one-finger head; dark amber at the rim of the glass. (Side note: label artwork is really neat).

S: Intense bourbon aroma dominates; there's a faint but detectable pepper scent, maybe from the fenugreek; strong candied toffee sweetness. Very inviting and somewhat reminiscent of BCBS.

T: Bourbon dominates on the front end, then gives way to toffee and dark red fruits; that's followed by some rich maltiness you might expect from a regular wee heavy; again, some light pepper or fenugreek flavor; heavy vanilla on the aftertaste.

M: Smooth and creamy; on the lighter/thinner side of the spectrum, but not in a bad way.

O: Outstanding. Great barrel character, great dark fruit and maltiness, and great spiciness (or whatever you want to call it) from the fenugreek. Not sure how faithful this BA version is to the wee heavy style, but why bother about that when it tastes so good?
