A thin tan head on a black body.
The aroma is wood, molasses, alcohol and chocolate.
Well, the taste is outstanding. It's amazing that this is a blend of six barrel aged ales and that it tastes this good. Where to begin? There are bits of every one of the six beers in this one beer and they all play together nicely.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Try it.

Pours dark dark some ruby color around the edges not a ton of head . Smell is complex dark fruits candy sweetness wood alcohol. Wow taste is different sour fruit some banana i expected the barrel aging to leave more mellow flavors but you can tell there are aspects of different beers here. Not too hot either I like this.

A - Opaque black, tan-brown head which persisted until about half way through. Very stout like.

S - Prunes, & brown sugar or apparent. A little alcohol present.

T - Overt sweetness. I only get a touch of roast for how dark it is. Hops aren't overly present either. Citrus sourness is apparent, very grapefruit like sourness.

M - Thick mouthfeel, light carbonation. Perceived sweetness sticks around, not overly dry. Perceived slickness on the tongue, but can't tell if that's from sweetness or diacetyl.

O - Very unique beers. It made me say "wow" out loud upon the first sip. So much going on with this beer I don't know where to start. A sour, sweet, touch bitter and alcohol experience. Check it out if you can, it's very unique. Very big beer without being overly boozy. I was content with half a pint pour.
