Pour on tap at All Pints North, dark brownish pour with khaki colored head, arom abrought nice notes of molasses, dark fruit, plum into some vanilla, oak,nice bourbon notes into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of bourbon, oak, and vanilla into some slight booze, touch of spice into a bit of molasses, dark fruit, some toffee, finishing sweet, slight spice. Very well done, could be a bit more balanced however.

Draft at Steel Toe during RBSG. Caramel and toffee with a good dose of vanilla and a bunch of bourbony oak. I really like this one. Luckily I got to try this side by side with the non-BA version.

On tap at brewery. Pours black with a thin tan collar. Aroma has sweet wood barrels and candied sugar with roasted English malt. Taste has a sweet booze with caramel, toffee malt and subtle bitter and spice. Palate is full slick and warming. Awesome!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
4 or 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s tap room. Consumed on 5-18-13. Very sweet, syrupy aroma features a remarkably candy-like smell as well as apricot. Pours a deep, hazy copper. Noteworthy taste features vanilla flavor. Lively in the palate. Medium to full body. Overall, too sweet but interesting.

A little overpowered by barrel characters. In a bottle mellowing for a year or two would do this bad boy some good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, amber color with no head. Aroma of caramel, roasted brown sugar and lots of whiskey notes. Taste is similar, but a little bit muddled, little bit of heat, enjoy it more than the regular.

On tap the first Friday they offered this at the brewery tap room. I like this a little less than the Dissent BA. It does add to the Wee Heavy base beer to barrel age it though.
