A. Black with a two finger tan head that recedes to an 1/8 inch covering.
S. Bourbon, vanilla, oak, toffee, coffee, caramel, creme brulee ... holy shit!
T. Vanilla, oak, caramel, toffee, dark roast coffee and a hint of booze. No hop bitterness detected - could use just a touch on the finish to clean things up on the back end.
M. Creamy and full bodied without coming across syrupy and gloppy.
O. Barrel-aged beers generally don't excite me (see my BCBS review). That said this beer is very enjoyable and very well made. Its richness and creaminess never gets tiring like so many BA beers. Its alcohol, though present, never gets in the way. Well done.
