I would have never guessed this beer is as strong as it is, seems so smooth and mild. having not had the base black in awhile, I am amazed how different this seems to be. a whole lot less Belgian and a whole lot more barrel. the bourbon flavors are dominant while the mouthfeel is extremely soft and velvety and almost delicate for such a big brew. dark chocolate and caramel malt comprise the bulk of the grain character, but the bourbon is a major contributor to flavor. vanilla and charred oak compliment the beer nicely, but I am missing much of the belgian yeast character I seem to remember from black. not a bad thing, just a big difference. on tap at the farmhouse in Burlington after a recent allagash event. lucky to have tried this in that format, just beautiful beer from one of the premier producers on American soil.
