A: Pours an opaque very dark brown (almost black) in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some cola brown + dark amber highlights. The beer has a thin (slightly less than a quarter finger tall) pillowy light beige head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal to light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of chocolate, toffee, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, and just a hint of spices. There is a fairly significant amount of bourbon, vanilla, and oak present as well.

T: Upfront there is a fair amount of malts sweetness in this brew with notes of dark fruits, candi sugar, and toffee. There is a strong flavor of bourbon and vanilla with a slightly lesser amount of oak notes. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of Belgian yeast and just a hint of spiciness. Lingering sweetness and minimal amounts of bitterness.

M: Just heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth. Light amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Another really great brew from Kane - I have been a longtime fan of BSDAs and this is a top notch example. Definitely a brew I would recommend - easy to drink and quite enjoyable. The bourbon barrel aging only improved this beer and I hope they begin to have this one show up at events around the area a little more often.
