A: poured into a snifter to a black beer with a small light tan head that is quick to fade to a small collar
S: smells of roasted malts, toffee, caramel and a lot of vanilla
T: taste is vanilla, roasted malts, caramel sweetness, and a little oak. Swallow is more vanilla and oak with some nice whiskey flavor, caramel and roasted malts with hints of dark chocolate.
M: Surprisingly thin for the ABV and style with a medium mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Fairly neutral finish that's a little bit drying.
O: Absolutely delicious. this beer has a ton of complexity and is silly drinkable at 12%. The flavors are great and the vanilla adds a nice additional dimension to the flavor profile of the base beer and barrel aging.

Gret vanilla flavor, honey is there but not much. Good balance. The vanilla provides a great sweet flavor that is not artificial or overpowering. A great beer.

Not sure if it was a bad bottle or that I had parabola before this but this tasted soapy and artificial vanilla. Thin body too.

Pours out looking like bart, no noticeable difference between this and the regular bart. Great aroma, love it, bourbon and vanilla and honey.

Taste, nice and sweet, covers alcohol heat so well, bourbon barrel is less in the background. Diabeetus jokes insert here.
