Incredibly dark for a wee heavy - near pitch black but ruby as well, like a black barleywine.

Rich aroma of earthy, herbal, raw oak barrel. A little leather-oak tannin, some very slight meaty smoke as well. Nice bourbon whiskey comes second. Chocolate, caramel and toffee malt. Similar on the taste - very rich, intense but well-integrated barrel that is not over-powering of the base beer, dry oak finish.

Fantastic beer - not sure it's a wee heavy, more like a barleywine but regardless it's a top notch barrel aged strong ale. I did prefer the eagle rare, but not by much.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep murky brown. Pond-water murkiness. No head. A few bubbles in the collar.

Smell - Brighter bourbon aroma than the Eagle Rare. Less oak and vanilla, more liquor. Brown sugar.

Taste - Brown sugar. Sharp bourbon and oak. Deep caramel. Vanilla sustained in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and boozy. Low carbonation.

Overall - Very similar to the Eagle Rare version. Really boozy, though.

This bottle is 4 years old. Let's see how it held up!

This pours a very dark brown, with a very small head, and no lacing.

On the nose, I get dark fruits, caramel, rye, tobacco, slight oxidation, sweet nutty bourbon, and oak.

This is an amazing series of beers. I can tell this isn't exactly getting better at this point, as the oxidation is creeping in slowly, but it's still a fantastic beer. There's old leather and tobacco, rye, chocolate, caramel. It's also slightly smokey. The bourbon barrel is so well integrated here. You get slight whiskey character, a hint of oak, and a bit of vanilla. It's a burly beer and I love it.

This is medium bodied, silky and fairly smooth, with a slight oaky astringency on the finish as it warms up. The carbonation level is pretty low.

Voodoo are the kings of the barrel-aging. Their program is easily one of the best in the country.
