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.
