Poured from bottle into snifter.

Dark as night with little head but a decent lacing. The smell is of strong barrel with apple and bourbon/brandy. Also has the smell of the standard Voodoo Daddy with strong chocolate but the hops have all but vanished. Near Perfect. The taste is exactly what I want with the barrel matching perfectly with a light chocolate batter cake taste. Honestly this is one of the best tasting beers I have had. The mouthfeel is cramy but not too thick. Again spot on. I would highly recommend this beer as long as you are not put off by the strong barrel characteristic in the smell which I prefer. One of my favorite beers that I have had.

Thanks drbenzo for sharing.

Appearance - the color was dark and not much light getting through this puppy. Thin lacing of tanish bubbles.

Smell - so nice on the nose, vanilla, oaky, apple, a hint of chocolate maybe. Very nice smelling.

Taste - such a good flavor through all parts of the mouth. From front to back palate. Smooth, sweet, apple hints, mild on the boozy flavors. Well done.

Mouthfeel - nice and smooth, the bubbles were good for a barrel aged beer, not too much not to little on the carbonation.

Overall - it is a super great drink. I wish I had one more to age.
