I have been meaning to try this beer for way too long. Actually, this beer was one of the first beers I had traded for. The bottle I will be drinking is a 2007.
A really hazy dark blood red glass that is as dark as you can get with out be completely opaque. Slight dark brown mahogany bubbles float on top that evaporate quickly into thin air. Very still.
Tons of bourbon mash, lots of vanilla, some caramel, slight cocoa, fairly sweet and creamy. The bourbon is overwhelming, hence the name. The smooth however is very warming and refined. With the bottle being aged and never having tried a fresh one, I have nothing to compare it to.
Incredibly complex even though the predominate flavor that jumps out is bourbon. Tons of caramel and toffee flavors. Incredibly smooth in swallowing, but fairly sweet and sticky mouthfeel that really rides the top and bottom of your mouth. Great roasted malts that produce a very nice texture and flavor assortment. Some cocoa and vanilla are present in the background, and are greatly overshadowed by the bourbon. Very bread-like/cracker after taste. Hints of oak are in the background as well. Definitely a slow sipper but a fantastic one at that.
