Bottle thnx to timfoolery @ WWT II. This pours a jet black coloured beer with a small beige head that leaves quickly. Aroma is alcoholic, bourbon oak, molasses and caramel. Awesome aroma. Flavour definitely has the bourbon influences present, alonside some heavy alcohol and sweet caramel touches. Very well balanced between the oak influences and the alcoholic content. Awesome brew!

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 dont remember much about it. However, I dont 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. Its 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. Its 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, its a good beer, so feel free to give it a try. Serving type: bottle 05-25-2013 00:57:12

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
bottle at home.Pours deep brown mahony amber with nearly no head. Intense bourbon vanilla nose, together with caramel toasty aromas and flavours. Mellow body, a tad of alcohol heath, but all well integrated... a treat!

OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Thanks, Joe, for sending me this one. Snifter pour. Not much of anything for a head. Some tan colored bubbles that quickly died. There was a ton of coconut aroma in this thing. Straight up macaroons, coconut, chocolate, sweet malts, molasses, bourbon, vanilla. Damn. This was nice. Poured out a deep, dark brown. Basically black. Thick, chewy texture. ABV isnt very present for the flavor. Molasses and light roast with tons of coconut and bourbon flavors. Very well done!

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2013
I liked this one, thanks for sharing OmegaX. The pour was thick and black with little signs of carbonation. I smelled mainly coconut and molasses with some raisins, toffee and chocolate in the mix. The taste was full of molasses and more raisins with a silky chocolate finish. Undertones of cherries, toffee and cocoa were more present as it warmed up.
