Reviewed from notes from 6/3/14

A- The pour is super thick and black as night. A very thin brown head recedes quickly, leaving no lacing. Not super striking, but forgivable considering how long it spent in the barrel!

S- The aroma is malty, grainy, and mildly tart. Massive amounts of oak, sweet chocolate, and a healthy dose of vanilla. A good amount of dark fruits as well.

T- A crazy, complex melange of flavors, almost akin to a high end red wine! Tons of berries, cherries, plums, chocolate, and brown sugar. The tartness is surprising but welcome. A huge oak presence, with a bit of the spicy rye whiskey. This beer is way out there, but it's awesome!

M- The mouth feel is medium to thick for the style. Mild carbonation. Slightly puckering, and nicely mouth coating.

O- This is an awesome beer that is very different from the paradigms of the style(s), but delicious none-the-less!
