Beer and review deleted with the recent site troubles. Here goes again, transported from RB. Hope this one sticks:

A bottle of this -bal aged rarity was shared by bring. Thanks, Barry! Pours dark brown with small tan head aroma. Not much lacing to speak of, but looks decent. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Smells good. Flavor is very heavy on bourbon, almost to a fault, with caramel, toffee, spices, oak -bal notes, vanilla, and alcohol. Bourbon overwhelms a bit. Palate is fairly smooth and the body is medium, but a little light for style. Drinkability average.
