On tap at the brewpub during the Ratebeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a dark brown head. The aroma of this beer is absolutely amazing. I get a ton of chocolate and roasted malts with a little bit of oak and bourbon mixed in. I could smell this beer all day long.

The flavor is just as good as the aroma. The dominant notes are the chocolate, roasted malt and a little bit of coffee, but they are complimented very nicely by all of the barrel-aged characteristics - vanilla, oak and bourbon. The barrel aging is somewhat subtle but definitely adds to the overall flavor of the beer.

Thick mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation.

This is an extremely well done barrel-aged beer. Hopefully they make this one again.
