New favorite beer; and that's coming from an IPA guy. Totally lives up to the hype.

What's that thing called? Cloud 9? Well, this bad boi just put Raul on cloud 11. I mean, Raul is feeling this thing like the "massage" that he just got down at the local parlor. Blacker than sin and as dangerous as a 2x4 with a nail in it, Raul was more into this thang than that one time your mama got bubble gum stick in her hair.

Sleek, sexy, and luxurious. This lil sucker is nothing but luxurious.

I had heard of this beer over and over again and I was happy with my BlackOps and Old Raspy Barrel Aged, but wow did they get this beer right. The subtle notes throughout the beer hit your tongue as it tingles from the bourbon barrels. Hints of smoke and wood touch the palate as the beer goes down so very smooth. Thank you Closisinthehouse for the new addiction.

Traded 4 pack of Heady Topper for a 2013 bottle that sadly has been standard cold-refrigerated. Since I have 2 aging (set to drink in 2018/9) already, I figured I might as well give this a shot now and see what the story is.

12 oz. bottle poured into Utopias glass. Date on bottle is 10/2013.

A) Dark, dark brownish-black. No head to speak of. Very tiny tan foam rim.

S) Sweet, sweet malt, bourbon, and alcohol. Can't mask it at this ABV.

T) Coffee, bourbon, vanilla, a bit of dark dried fruit. Some alcohol.

M) Very full-bodied and syrupy. Not much carbonation at all, not sure if it's this bottle or could use more in general. Pretty good balance. Sweet finish, not what you would expect from moderate hopping and big ABV. Quite good.

O) It's great, but didn't blow me away as advertised. Hopefully aging will add more.

Over the top bourbon and thick, but exactly what you want in a bourbon barrel aged stout
