Dark brown, super thin head on it, not impressive looking, looks more like spirits than beer. Aroma was ultra rich, lots of malt, barrel, chocolate, syrup/molasses, alcohol heat.

Taste is incredibly complex and huge. Sweet caramel and chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, burnt malt and brown sugar. Sticky stuff. Not all that hot for 17%. Carbonation subdued and appropriate. Giant stuff.

Had this last night with an anniversary ale vertical. This was the first 100% bourbon barrel aged anniversary ale we had (100% Papier was too hard to find). I've had the 25/75 blend a few times, which is good, but the 100% blend is just amazing. The barrel really does something nice to this old ale, simply amazing.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #633.

Appearance - Deep amber. Nice khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Lots of bourbon. Sharp liquor aroma. Oak. Vanilla. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Slight oxidation.

Taste - Bourbon is first. Brown sugar. Oxidized flavors lend sherry and just a bit of cardboard, but I think it works really well. Bourbon comes back aggressively.

Mouthfeel - Immensely boozy. Medium carbonation. Sticky sweet.

Overall - This beer ages so nicely. Delicious.
