Pour is a dark murky ugly brown with a small amount of tan head that dissipates immediately. Nose is heavy bourbon and some charred wood with faint notes of sweet candied sugar. Flavor is also heavy on the bourbon and wood, actually in a nice way. The quad doesn't make a ton of appearance, malts are actually fairly rich, a hint of malty sweetness in back. Fuller body, fairly dry, a touch chalky in the feel.

Deep mahogany pour with a small color of bubbles for a head. Aroma of dark fruits and bready yeast, boozy heat right from the get-go. Taste of caramel malts and dark fruits, grain alcohol, pumpernickel, and a pretty big oak quality. Not as smooth as I like my BB beers to be, but this is a style I don't often have in a barrel-aged form. Body was medium, smooth, hot, but not too hot, appropriate carbonation. Pretty good overall.

22 oz bottle. Thanks to Geist, Steve or Thorpe or someone.

Pours a dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Pleasant aroma of vanilla, dark fruit, booze, oak and cherry. Barrel forward flavor, vanilla and caramel with light oak blends seamlessly with a robust malty quad. Medium thick with fine carbonation. Easy drinking for the style.

I had this on-tap at the anniversary party. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a mahogany color with some red at the edge when the light comes through. There is almost no head.

Smell: Quite sweet with some raisins and caramel. There is also some heat from the bourbon that hits the nose.

Taste: Super sweet with lots of dark fruit and some cherries. I'm getting caramel along with the bourbon. The finish is also quite sweet.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit on the syrupy side with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very sweet beer, but I enjoyed it. Fairly smooth. A nice beer to have for dessert. I'd have more.
