What an incredible complex and delicious treat this is. Pours dark, big creamy head. Huge aroma, one of the best smelling beers I've had, caramel, figs, dates, rich luxury wood, and thick butterscotch cake batter. This is the one beer I thought you don't even have to drink it, and I literally sat there for 5 minutes just taking in the beautiful aroma. Then pour 1/2 the bottle and you're hit with a big blast of alcohol, sit the bottle down and the alcohol smell recedes into the background again, leaving the original aromas. Wow.
Tastes opens with a huge barleywine sweetness followed by beautiful, refined bourbon and vanilla that complements the caramel and dark fruits sweetness perfectly. The alcohol is nowhere to be found, just one monster beer.
Weyerbacher absolutely kills it, Insanity, Tiny, Double Simcoe, and Slam Dunkel are all world class beers, and the Dunkel will be out soon, we can't wait.

Pours a cloudy, coppery brown color. Some light still gets thru at the bottom of the glass making it kind of luminescent looking. Tan head develops then disappears quickly to nothing. Of course, no lace here.
Smell is rich, malty, oak, raisins, with lighter notes of grape and floral. Balance is quite good.
Taste is equally rich, like Warren Buffett rich. Notes of malt, oak, smoke, raisin & dates, bourbon, with a faint floral presence. Balance is phenomenal.
Full bodied, light-ish, but tart, effervescence. Warming from the start, a serious sipping beer. I imagine this is the closest I'll get to an after-dinner whiskey. A truly amazing brew. Get one, or seven, and share with friends on a cold winter night and you will be very happy.
