Poured into a snifter. Poured as dark a brown as brown can get with the thinnest tan head that leaves no lacing. There was a small but noticeable amount of sediment. Oak and toffee dominate the nose, with the caramel from the bourbon coming on strong as well. Vanilla and butterscotch in the background, with light mocha detected. Big sweetness all the way down, light heat in the middle. Drinks like molasses, which leaves behind a long aftertaste of toffee. Feels like drinking a melted butterscotch candy. This drinks exactly like what I hope for in a BA wee heavy.

Overall: The beer is perfectly aged, not overbearing with bourbon smell and taste, yet always lingering around. Perfect palate is a great finish to a very well done beer. I loved it.
