3.8/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a silky pitch black with some dark brown head initially. Head quickly dissipates and leaves a small amount of lacing. The nose features some nice creamy vanilla chocolate interplay with a slight emphasis on the roast. The barrel is mellow but definitely present. The taste starts smooth and creamy with chocolate and vanilla notes, this then gives way to a bit of astrigency and heat from the barrel. Mouthfeel is appropriate for style with moderate carbonation. Overall, quite a bit better than the BA barleywine that was released alongside this and worth a try.

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours a clear super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a slightly better bourbon presence in the taste in my opinion.

A: Pours thick and black. Forms a moderate sized deep tan-colored head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing for a beer of this strength.

S: Aroma is pleasant. Deeply roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses. Bourbon notes are present, but they're more of an supporting player than the main feature.

T: Taste falls off a bit. First of all, the taste is not at all balanced. It is hot and boozy with plenty of fusel spice. Notes of chocolate and roasted malts. Vanilla. But the booziness dominates.

M: As mentioned above, this is a boozy beer. Full bodied and smooth on the one side. Boozy and prickly hot on the other. Mild bitterness.

O: A decent beer that might benefit from some aging in the hopes that the aggressive heat with mellow with age. Never-the-less, a decent brew.
