3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red to light brown in hue with virtually no head. Caramel, toffee, a little coffee, vanilla and cherries all present in the aroma. Fairly sweet, very light acidity, not overly oaky, much more integrated than the original. Finishes with a lingering caramel sweetness. Medium to full body, creamy texture and almost no carbonation.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 37/280 via Jason. The beer pours to a dark murky brown with ruby hints body and no head by the time I started rating. In a side by side with the regular Decadence, it was darker and murkier rather than the lighter, sexier, and glowingly radiant non-BA version. The aroma is tart bourbon and oak with toffee and more oak. Notes of nougat and caramel with some vanilla. The flavor is oaken vanilla, bourbon, toffee, nougat, and a very complex malt. The beer is unreal. The palate is rich and full bodied and creamy with a nice warming feel. Very complex and insanely good. Thanks for sharing Jason!

Nice reddish brown. Thereís a bit bourbon in there, but itís nicely balanced. Good vanilla, wood, caramel, and spiciness of the alcohol. This is a really good blend of flavors and aromas.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle thanks to jarspag, #37/280!! Poured much deeper than the regular Decadence.. plum-tinted mahogany with a short, creamy cap of deep beige head that receded quickly to a light ring. The aroma picked up a hefty influence from the barrel, but remained marvelous.. very lightly smoked aged caramel paired with smoky caramel.. some lighter oaky booziness makes it even better!
Flavor picked up plenty of lightly-smoked caramel, toasted caramel, and vanilla with minor hits from the bourbon.. picked up some more bourbon as it warmed, but it never took over.. warm, lightly-smoked finish stuck around for quite a while! Perfect execution of the barrel-aging and a wonderful underlying beer. Phenominal beer!

Thanks to Ugsmash bottle 37/280
cloudy mahogony pour w/ a thin tan head and some skittish head. Aroma is big and malty lots of raisens and vanilla a good amount of carmel some other dark fruits darker than the non ba served side by side for all you judgmental rating readers. Palate is full and well coated a bit hotter than Iíd like. Flavor is a lot of bourbon on top of the regular a much more pronounced dark fruit w/ oaks and vanilla. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2010 (Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of madsberg. Pours a cloudy, dark, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Distinct aroma of oak and bourbon. Quite full-bodied, extremely complex, lots of roasted malts, dried fruits - raisins in rum - and again these great bourbon accents. The finish is rather bitter. Very pleasant. 270607
