Appearance: Arrives with the liquid colored a pretty dark brown with ruby highlights; the head was not overly large but it did leave the occasional strand behind

Smell: Dark fruit (prune, primarily) and Bourbon, with some chocolate underneath

Taste: The dark fruit flavors (prune and date) appear first, followed by the Bourbon barrel and chocolate flavors; after the swallow, the Bourbon lingers in the aftertaste, bringing with it some vanilla elements

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation

Overall: Duck-Rabbit has a way with its limited edition beers and this one is no exception

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013 Solid black color. Aroma of chocolate covered cherries with a hint of coconut. Outstanding chocolate fruity flavor with hints of vanilla and sweet smooth bourbon. Thick body with a creamy silky mouthfeel. Incredible beer. Smooth complex and tasty.

I had this on-tap at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.

A: Poured about as black as night but without much head to speak of (unlike it's non barrel-aged counterpart). However, in the head's place was a liquid so thick that even oil rig workers will cower in fear.

S: Inside the nutty bourbon-ness, there was a delectable licorice, chocolate cake batter smell that just hit all the right notes.

T: SO much flavor here. Don't let my descriptor of licorice scare you licorice haters out there, this was more like dark chocolate Twizzlers with fudge buttercream frosting, almonds, and bourbon. Shall I continue?

M: This was sludge for sure, just like it should be, with low carbonation and all. The glass came out fairly clean, but my palate was wrecked... in a good way.

O: I drank my taster with the greatest of ease and later that night, one of my friends got distracted and left our table. Yep... I drank the rest of his too. One of the highlights of the conference!

On tap at Secret Stash Bash; served in a small nonic.

A: The beer is a deep dark mahogany color, clear, with excellent, well-proportioned tan head that fades slowly.

The aroma has a very pronounced dark chocolate note, and more dark fruit than I recall being in the standard version. To some extent, the dark roasted malts were masked by the barrel aging.

T: The barrel aging is obvious, a little too obvious, in tasting. Thankfully, the medium and dark roasted malts do show through, and there are some appreciated dark fruit notes. Excellent finish and aftertaste. Lightly sweet.

M: Full bodied and very smooth, with excellent medium carbonation.

O: Rich and improved version of the very good Duck-Rabbit Baltic porter. Very satisfying.
