Really dark red pour almost brown. Off white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is plums, fig, vanilla, and booze. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, oak, with some sweetness and a touch of bourbon to round it out. Suprisingly drinkable for 12% abv.

The BA Cereal Killer pours mahogany in color with a weak bubbly khaki head that hugs the ring of my glass. The aroma is of sweet bourbon, lite oak, carmel malts, and a touch of vanilla. As for taste I picked up on sweet carmel malts, sweet bourbon, booze, brown sugar, a tad bit of spice, vanilla, and a toffee like flavor. The sweetness masked the booze and bitterness pretty well. I find that the finish is the most enjoyable part in this beverage. In the end all that sweetness is hit but not taken over by the spices, bitterness, and the booze. This beverage reminds me of a good girl who can be a little freaky. Overall this worth a try and somewhat of a memorable experience.

Nice and sweet and very boozy. Flavors of raisins, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, oak, and burnt sugar. Very good if in the mood for something sweet.

Thanks to Tmac220 for shaing a bottle with me! Bottle. Poured a dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon with a bit of sweet fruit and perhaps a touch of malt. The flavor followed the aroma, but in my opinion was fairly dominated by the bourbon. It was definitely good, but I liked the BB Impy much better.

Dark root beer color with little to no head. Nose of caramel vanilla, banana and bourbon. Light body, with heavy booze dry flavor. Bourbon notes and oak really come through on the finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark cola color with slights off white head. Aroma is bourbon, barrel, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some melon. Taste is bourbon, brown sugar, sweet. Not as much fruit or barrel in the taste as in the aroma but still very good.

I had this on tap at the brewpub. It has a great dark ruby color to it. The aroma is strong vanilla, dark cherry, and sweet caramel. The flavor has some pronounced vanilla bourbon character up front with a nice sweet caramel, dark cherry middle. There is enough alcohol on the finish that it does not leave too much of a cloying sweet aftertaste. I really liked this. If you see a bottle of this, don’t let the price dissuade you, it’s well worth a try.

Very strong ale. Drink it from a snifter. Alcohol though out this one. Bourbon seems to increase the sharpness. Luckily it doesn't overpower it so you don't feel like your drinking a shot of bourbon.

Notes from 3-18-2010 beer tasting: Very nice, rich, malty aroma. Good pouring head. Deep rich red color. Cask flavors explode in mouth. Very smooth on palate, with delightful finish. Perhaps one of the best beers from Arcadia.
