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.

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

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.

2013 vintage

A: As pitch black as it gets. Oily midnight black body topped with a dark tan head that recedes to a ring around the glass quickly. Viscous legs remain on the glass after each swirl.

S: Massive toffee and caramel, followed by brandied cherry and big bourbon notes. Hard to hide the ABV but it has mellowed considerably after some time in the cellar. Minor (relatively speaking) notes of vanilla and maple provide backing to the ample nose.

T: Dried dark fruits, more caramel, and oaky vanilla. Dark cherry and some sherry like flavors as well. Bitter and tannic dark chocolate in the finish.

M: THICK and incredibly viscous. The mouthfeel supports what are some unbelievably massive flavors.

O: Absolutely fantastic but I honestly preferred it before it was cellared. Still God Tier in the BA stout world but next year I wont sit on the bottles as long.
