Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a dark chocolate brown color that's almost black and completely opaque with a one finger beige head that slowly fades into a thin lasting ring. Sporadic lace left behind.  Good retention on these crazy high abv beers.

Sweet vinous aroma with a nice whiskey barrel presence that gives off lots of sweetness which slightly overpowers the malt notes.  Not picking up much hops.  All whiskey, toasted oak and vinous dark fruit.

Medium bodies and extremely well balanced.  Oddly enough, the barrel character is all toward the end of the palate.  Lots of vinous dark fruit sweetness up front with hints of plum, raisin, fig and dark berries. Not picking up hops but the barrel comes in toward the end.  dryness from the toasted oak and some coconut followed by spicy whiskey sweetness.  Great whiskey flavor without any heat whatsoever.  How do they get the ABVs on these barrel aged beer so well masked?  Dangerously drinkable, well balanced and delicious.
