On tap @ Fat Head's Brewers Brawl. I had a bunch of pours, this was amazing! Easily the best beer out of the 50+ offerings that the day brought to Ohio. Thanks to Fat Head's for a great event, it exceeded my expectations and I'll be back next year for sure.

So dark it's the next thing to black, opaque and beckoning. It's mocha colored head hangs on but is slowly consumed by the darkness. A beautiful looking beer!

Smells out of this world. Coconut is the main flavor, implied by the wonderful bourbon and vanilla. The malt comes through with some chocolate notes, but this is mainly about the bourbon and the Belgian yeast. The yeast gives a fruity tone, and the bourbon kicks this one into outer space.

The barrel rules the taste and that's fine with me. This has such a prominent coconut and vanilla thing going on. The beer underneath is well complimented by the expert -bal aging. The yeast and dark malt give fruity notes, some vinous elements, and a great chocolate sweetness. Ends up smooth with another kiss of bourbon. Really flavorful, but the original beer provides just enough base for this high rise of flavor. My favorite Belgian style Barrel Aged beer yet!

The mouthfeel is nice on this beer. Nothing unique, but a nice medium bodied ale. Creaminess abounds.

I loved this. It was right up my alley. A huge beer that's perfect for special events. And this beer made this event extra special. I offer a raised glass to Bells for the beer and to Fat Heads for the great time!

4.7/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

had a full growler of this one either last year (or the year before), sorry about the delay.

S: immediately i get a oak and bourbon aroma that is well balanced by dark fruits, chocolate, and alcohol

T: a very flavorful beer. like the nose, it has a dominant bourbon and oak that that is balanced about by a caramel backbone that has a splash of vanilla notes. the creamy finish puts an added content to it that allows one to want to take another sip.

overall, this is a damn good beer and the alcohol is very well hidden in the taste

Serving type: growler
