Cracked a bottle of this with beerman207 over the weekend. Review is from notes taken on 3/27/2010 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark coffee brown and has nice deep ruby highlights when held to the light; loose and thin creamy/milky light tan head; body is dark and nearly opaque; loose and spotty light tan lacing holds on here and there to the sides of the glass.

Smell: Sweet oaky vanilla - the barrel really comes through on this one; definite whiff of alcohol that is bourbonesque; a bit of chocolate as well.

Taste: A lot going on here -- deep dark roasty malts (but not quite burnt); light hints of chocolate and a definite presence of that sweet oaky vanilla that is so present in the smell; definite presence of bourbony alcohol; a slight presence of smoke and as it warms, there is a slight cola/cough syrupy sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, soft smooth carbonation that almost feels a little flat; slight stickiness left on the roof of the mouth; belly is left quite warm.

Drinkability: A little hot and overly sweet as it warms and it feels like if I had too much it would turn my stomach; I'm curious to see how this would do with some age on it to mellow out the alcohol.
