4.23/5 rDev -3.2%
2011 vintage poured into snifter. Pours a dark brown with cocoa colored head. Opaque in appearance. Nose starts with mellow vanilla, some harsh barrel notes, and a bit of oxidization present which brings on some sherry like notes. Dark chocolate and roasted malt is present beneath the barrel. The taste is smooth and starts with dark chocolate. Next comevanilla and charred oak with more oxidization. Dark fruits come out. Tons of flavor here that is very well balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Overall, a nice beer that pack a flavorful punch. The oxidization is a slight drawback, but still a tasty brew.

Bomber poured into snifter, compliments of homebrew311.
A: Black, pours with a little over a finger of mocha colored head that reduced fairly quickly and leaves little-to-no lacing.
S: I want to say its complex. I want to say there's a lot going on. But all I get is chocolate and bourbon - and I am in love with the aroma. If you can imagine melting the finest chocolate, mix in a top notch bourbon, you can grasp the power of this aroma. Any other similar beer also has coffee, vanilla, roast/char something or other. Not this one. Simple, straight to the point. Chocolate. Bourbon. F-yeah.
T: A mimic of the aroma. Chocolate up front and throughout each sip, with a lingering bourbon character that makes me feel as if I'm drinking a carbonated bourbon infused with chocolate.
M: Silky smooth, carbed well. For an under 10%er it feels very thick.
O: This beer is unbelievably good. The alcohol is non existent in aroma and flavor. I received this as a 'surprise' beer from my wants list, and have to say it's the best surprise I've ever received.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin dark tan head that rapidly dissipated, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass and faint hints of wispy bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of bourbon are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate; these become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the nose but has additional notes of vanilla from the oak and hints of molasses-like sweetness. No alcohol is perceptible except for the bourbon.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The bourbon barrel aging lends a bit of warming to the feel.
O: This is a pleasant stout to sip and savor the aromas and flavors imparted by the bourbon, although it is rather easy to drink because the alcohol is mostly well masked from the taste.
