Bell's Barrel Aged Batch 9000 #9 / 1502
Pours a dark brown that still has a bit of visibility through it. Almost like a soda. Smell of molasses and bourbon up front. Get a bit of oak and some fruit as well, but definitely sweetness and booze. Ton of flavors going on with the beer, but follows the scent. Molasses, vanilla, bourbon, oak, and brown sugar. A bit sweet and hot at the same time, but smooth on the mouth feel with some caramel at the end. Almost creamy like a melted milk chocolate, but with a bit of carbonation to smooth it out. Reminded me a bit of the 10000 with all the flavors going on
