Poured from a 22 oz bomber. Aroma has moderate sherry notes from oxidation with some raisin, fig and prune. Some dark caramel an toffee notes with hints of chocolate and roast. Light bourbon and oak notes. Hints of alcohol spice. Pours dark brown to black with a medium sized, moderately thick, dark tan head that recedes somewhat quickly to a thin film that lingers. Faint lacing and moderately long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with moderately strong sherry, raisin, fig and prune notes. Moderate toffee and caramel notes with light chocolate and faint roast notes. Light oak and bourbon with light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and slightly silky with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer. The sherry notes are a bit strong in the aroma but work nicely in the flavor. Much like the iced Bart, it’s time to drink these if you have them. They are not getting any better.

"A little past its prime but still damn good, even if the flavors are slightly muddled and muted. Some rye still shows and some booze, roast and chocolate. Still a smooth sipper."

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Almost clear dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and fresh with a mild fine carbonation. Bourbon biscuits in the malt. Light bourbon (the real stuff!), smooth with a touch of oaky vanilla. Whisper of cherry. Smooth finish. Lovely!

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured dark brown-ish with little-to-no head. Nice bourbon notes on the nose and flavor. Tasted grains, oak, toffee, whiskey-soaked wood, light doughy pastry sweetness, and more malts in the finish. Smooth. Nice tasting.
