A: it pours with a slight head and very think with no transparency (which is what I look for in these heavier beers).
S: An amazing sweetness that is something unique to this beer and why I rated it so high. You know you are getting a quality aged beer
T: Almost reminds me of a maple-ish flavor with a solid background that allows the barrel aged potency to shine
M: A little heavy but something I have come to expect with these aged beers
O: A unique barrel aged treat that is work the $$ if you find it. An overall solid flavor profile that allows the barrel flavors to shine
