750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some transparency. Decent khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Oak and some fruity notes. Vanilla. Some chocolate.

Taste - Sweet up front. A lot of brandy flavors. Fruity malts. Chocolate is secondary. A little roasty at the end.

Mouthfeel - It's boozy up front, but dies down as the barrel flavors subside. Medium body.

Overall - A little boozy, but otherwise an approachable BA beer.

Bottle shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris!

The beer is dark brown, approaching black. Thin, tan head with minimal lacing. The aroma brings roast, oak, vanilla, dark fruits, spice. Lots of flavor. Very potent. An almost tannic aspect from the oak barrels. An unorthodox flavor and a bit different than what I had expected, though by no means in a negative way. Some alcohol heat in the finish, but this seems to have calmed down quite a bit based on reviews early this year. A solid beer from an outstanding brewery.
