4/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dispensed an opaque, dark brown, near black body with a lasting, medium toned tan head.

Smell: A great, gracious bourbon nose that nicely compliments the Big Shanty qualities with notes of semi-sweet chocolate, well-kilned grains, and spice.

Taste: Sweetish dark malts, with tastes of chocolate, light roasted grains, and dark bread. Residual sugars heightened by the brown sugar and light vanilla elements from the barrel aging. Dark fruitiness of raisins, prunes. Very minor hop character, bitterness. Drying, malty, still fairly bourbony finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: For the past several years, the beer scene has been sprouting substandard barrel-aged garbage like fungus on a four-week-old tuna sandwich. Not the case with BABS! A real treat, I'll say.
