Thanks Chad for the hookup. Shared with brian23456 last Sunday. Poured into snifters...lets see what this CBS hype is all about..
A - Pours a dark black with a mocha head with tints of ruby. The head is about a half finger thick. Lacing is really nice and creamy and there are patches of foam clouds in the middle.
S - Creamy, dark Belgium chocolate, light roast, caramel and maple syrup. Light oak and nice hints of bourbon. Tiny bits of char, tabacco leaf and candy like sugar.
T - Coffee and Espresso, roast, chocolate and really smooth bourbon. Maple syrup and a touch of peanut butter. Little bit of vanilla and oats as it warms.
M - Creamy carbonation and touch of heat from the barrel but it is well balanced with the roast of the coffee like flavors. Leaves the mouth a bit dry, just taking a drag off a nice cigar.
O - Yep, this stuff is awesome. Lives up to the hype, although I didn't expect it to be as crazy as it is. Way tasty stuff and something that I really enjoyed. Glad I got another bottle hanging out to try again in the future. Believe the hype...
