Poured into a pint glass . Opaque brown color with a thick tan head. Rich aromas of bourbon, vanilla, and roasted coffee. The Bourbon was very prominent up front, overpowering the vanilla and coffee. I love VAS, and I felt like this took away from the great balance and flavor. A great beer, but I certainly prefer the base version.

When this was first poured and served to me, the nose was phenomenal. Unfortunately the taste did not quite follow suit. Although it was a very complex tasting beer, the barrel taste did not do much to add to the base beer.
