Poured into a snifter. 2012 vintage, bottle #71. 3.0 A: Deep brown color. Aggressive pour yielded just a wisp of head that fell quickly. 4.5 S: I had another BART variant a while ago, but I donít remember much about it. However, I donít think it smelled much like this. This American strong ale smells like equal parts imperial stout and barleywine. Moderate roastiness, milk chocolate, layers of caramel, and hints of toffee. Dark fruits including dates, figs, prunes, and light raisin. As per usual, the barrel aging is done really well. Smooth leather with earthiness and light, supple tannins. Lots of vanilla and a mild oakiness. 4.0 T: Taste is like the nose, but it less powerful. Itís also a bit more tilted toward barleywine. Light roast and chocolate. Layers and layers of caramel, some toffee, fruits mentioned in nose. Light booziness that fits in well with the beer as a whole. Again a good bit of vanilla, leather, earthiness, and oak. 2.75 M: Just like the Eclipse line, this is desperately in need of some body. Itís a light to lighter medium body. It lacks creaminess and is also a bit low on carbonation. Get a higher mash temp up in this bitch. 3.75 D: Again the thing that holds a 50/50 brew from being stellar is the mouthfeel. More body would fix the mouthfeel and would add some more flavor to the taste. Still, itís a good beer, so feel free to give it a try. Serving type: bottle 05-25-2013 00:57:12
