4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery, 8/10/13 now this is a treat, I could barely finish my first sample of BABP, but this barrel aging has done wonders, smooth balanced YES BALANCED barrel aging, nice notes of vanilla, mild roast smooth tasty, a little thin still but probably spot on, touches of figs even... sweetness!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Fat Heads. Pours black with a big tan head. Nose is bourbon, sugary plums, Brown sugar, molasses and some vanilla. Flavor is brown sugar, sweet plums & figs, a solid booze hit. Caramel comes out & dominates, complimented by roast & dark fruits in the finish. Its a big beer but the serving size (6oz?) kept it from being overwhelming.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at Fat Headís. Pours black with a marshmellow tan head. Aroma is somewhat boozy, vanilla, oak, chocolate. This smells really good. The kentucky bourbon notes really shine. Creamy medium mouthfeel. Flavors tickle my tastebuds. This brew has a great bourbon taste upfront, mixes with the chocolate, vanilla and oak meld, with more chocolate, then finishes really smooth. Bourbon lingers a bit. I love this!
