Wow this is really, really good. For starters, you pop the cork (well maybe, this cork broke off halfway, leaving me wondering if I will enjoy this beer this AM. And a little frustrated, damn corks. OK, no worries, I got the other 1/2 and it just pops. Big aroma of whiskey, oak, vanilla, butterscotch. Yes butterscotch, delicious.

Nice appearance. Opaque, murky, wonderful brown. Aroma? Yes this has it, previously mentioned. Insane, lovely whiskey, like the Crown Royal I've been sipping on since Christmas. Taste, yes it's got that too, fruits, whiskey, vanilla, oak, wood, sweets, apples, pears and cherries with a wonderful, exquisite bitter tart finish with more sweetness. Like a Slam Dunkel on steriods. Probably why I like this beer so much, the recently retired Dunkel was always a favorite. I will seek this one out again, as in today, its pretty damn good, at a great price for barrel aged deliciousness. Weyerbacher killing it, as always.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a dark ruby color with a an off white head that recedes quickly

S: Banana, concord grapes, plum, fig, blackberry, currant, mixed with a strong oaky whisky sort of ether

T: Almost bittersweet dark fruit, as if the dark fruits were drained of their sugary flesh and sun-dried. Figs, plums, dark berries, all dried out up front, with a hint of sweetness in the middle that's quickly followed by a dry, oaky, woody whisky finish

O: This is a great interpretation of the style, but I much prefer a straight up quad to one thats been aged in bourbon/whiskey/scotch barrels

A: Dark mahogany brown with a gorgeous, bready, thick head and okay lacing

S: Sweet caramel malts with lots of dark fruits and some boozy whiskey and oak undertones

T: Very balanced, big, boozy beer; sweet up front but balanced by a dry slightly bitter finish: the bready malts and dark fruits play well of of each other (cherries, dates, raisins, plums)

F: Quite creamy; medium body

O: A boozy but not overpowering beer--I wish there was more of a barrel presence but it's a really nice beer nonetheless
