Thist special treat arrived courtesy of clvand0. Thanx!
I am sampling a 12 oz bottle in a snifter at room temp. The beer pours a pitch black with no lite escaping when held to the lite.
A dense tan head foams up and floats easily on the surface. Some droplets from the pour actually remain suspended on the surface of the head.
The aroma is toffee and chocolate with heavy bourbon notes as well.
First sip is silky smooth and creamy with gentle and very fine carbonation that rolls across my palate. Flavor is all malt with bourbon. SOme sweet vanilla mixes with chocolate nicely and finishes with rich bourbon notes throughout the sampling. A very easy to drink beer for 11% even with the strong warming in my throat and belly after each swallow.
QUite a nice beer that I am enjoying thoroughly and recommend to anyone that likes bourbon, big beers, or both!
