This is the best smelling BA Wee Heavy I've had the pleasure of drinking. The barrel aroma fills the room when pouring; similar to Rare. The beer is packed with flavor; a heavy barrel presence but well integrated with the base. Mouth feel is really the only characteristic that could be improved. A tad thin. If it had the viscosity and feel of CC BA Big Sound this would be a 5 in it's style.
Not sure why there are such drastic differences in reviews. The bottle I had was awesome; another hit from the Voodoo Barrel Room.

8oz pour at the release.
Something went wrong here! Boozy Carmel Green Apple on nose and taste. Similar off flavors that Voodoo had with Blackbeard's Delight. They should have drainpoured this batch rather than selling tainted beer to their customers.

8 oz draft pour into a snifter. Dark brown almost black. Malt and barrel fill the nose. Taste is similar with hints of tabacoo and leather. Very smooth with just the right heat. I did not think I was going to like this beer as much as I did. A must try if you like wee heavies.
