On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Hazy dark brown in color, or "dark leather" as the brewery calls it, with a small tan head and some lacing. Aroma is very malty and somewhat sweet with caramel, roast, bourbon, and wood. Flavor is pretty awesome. Fairly sweet with loads of caramel malt, toffee, bourbon, nuts, wood, vanilla, roast, and a little bit of smokiness. Very complex, even more so than the standard Double Vision that I think is a great beer, and also balanced. Palate is smooth and fairly creamy with medium-plus body. I like this stuff a lot. This brewery is really great when they want to be.
