4.75/5 rDev +24.3%
Poured chilled in standard ale glass. This puppy has aged for two years+.
A: 3: ruddy dark copper color; thin head; very nice carbonation
S: 4.5: plum, figs, currant up the ying yang; wow, this smells great, obviously aged with time, like a port
T: 5: rich, thoroughly complex malts; the aging did amazing things for this beer, turning it into a very sophisticated beer; leather overtones
Highly recommended for any kind of drinking, but was a very good choice for aging. Cheers!

3.66/5 rDev -4.2%
Drinking a bottle that is about 7 or 8 months old
Appearance: half way from a burnt orange to a garnet red color. a finger or so of a tan foamy head. fairly strong clarity
Smell: strong sweet caramel, maple syrup, vanilla, oak, and some astringent alcohol
Taste: opens with a sweet syrupy mess of caramel, vanilla, maple, and other sugars. some oak character along with a hint of alcohol. all of this is underlain by smokey earthy malts.
Mouthfeel: thick and creamy. some slight alcohol warmth. smoke lingers behind
Overall: I think I would like this beer immensely if it weren't for the smoked malts. the syrup and sweet aspects work well with the barrel aspect. I just can't get the balance between them and the smoked malt
