2016 variant (bottle number unknown) drank in a snifter on 12/16/2016

L-thick, black, motor oil, nice lacing, minimal head...one of the thickest beers I have had

S/T-wow this is amazing. the barrel alone without adjuncts is unbelieveable. The bourbon, VANILLA-y oak, and barrel come through exceptionally well

F-thick, oily, amazing

Overall-I am amazing at how different these BA DLs are compared to the base. The barreling is outstanding at Floyd's and maybe even underrated (if possible) based on how the gen pop seems to feel about the base DL (which I still enjoy). This is for sure underrated as it definitely held its own with BVDL and FVM. AMAZING!!!

Poured into a snifter. An opaque bark brown color with a thin dark tan head. Little retention and lacing. A big whiff of chocolate and vanilla on the first sniff. Some bourbon and roasted malt. The taste followed with sweet vanilla, chocolate, candied sugar, and whisky. A very thick, viscous drink. Well-balanced but heavy and sweet. Definitely a sipper with friends. Great brew.
