Thanks to jbaker67 for the trade! Bottled on 03/23/2013. 12 oz bottle poured into a Blind Tiger Brewery snifter.
Appearance: Pours about a finger of quickly dissipating dark brown head. Black body.
Aroma: Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla and nutty coffee beans. Just a bit of sweet bourbon left in the nose. The standout here is the deep, chocolaty notes.
Taste: Up front you get that sweet, caramel/butterscotch bourbon barrel. Follows with more of those awesome chocolate notes, almost like a dark chocolate mocha with lots of cream and smooth roasted coffee beans. Finishes with a bit of oaky bourbon barrel.
Mouthfeel: Almost perfect. Full and very creamy. Warming but only in the best way.
Overall: Needless to say a beer like this is always a treat. What I enjoyed most was the amazing notes of creamy chocolate with the bourbon rounding everything out. Had I tried this fresher I’m sure the bourbon would have been more present but as it is now it’s still an amazing beer. Well balanced and nuanced. Highly recommended.

4.73/5 rDev +2.2%
2013 Bottle enjoyed in parallel with an Event Horizon
A: Pitch black in a tulip. Pour with low carbonation and a thin small brown head that tracked down the glass.
S: Even after warming on the counter, this kept smelling better through the pour. Lots of bourbon with some light coffee and vanilla notes.
T: Just delightful. Bourbon hits you first but is so integrated that the other flavors immediately follow as you send this one to the back of the tongue. Even at 11%+, no burn at all and a long lingering finish.
M: Decadent. Rich, smooth.
O: Just about perfect. I love having this in a 12oz format to enjoy by myself and if I want to share, I just open a second. One of the best examples of the style there is. MAKE MORE.
