Falling off the wagon with Doom is a delight. It spills out in a gorgeous honey coloured pour and has a decent dusty white head a pinky tall. The glass is laced with jagged remnants looking like snow covered mountain peaks.
The nose is full of bourbon immediately after the vessel is filled. The ale qualities bring up the rear where caramel notes, which seem to be the most abundant, are beautifully drizzled over the pine sap qualities of the hop additions.
The taste is wrapped in bourbon. Belches of bourbon heat and hoppy green ale are lovely. Caramel notes flourish within the swarming bouquet of sappy pine flavour. Describing this thing of beauty is quite difficult. This is one of the best things to come down the pipes around this reviewer's hideout in quite some time.
The mouthfeel has a syrupy thickness that carries the flavours well without becoming too heavy.
Overall, I am quite overjoyed with this one. I stopped at the right place at the right time and got a brew that has grabbed me by my neck and pulled me back to the ales I love. Another masterpiece from my favorite brewers on the planet. God, thanks for the luck I have. Thanks Top Shelf for letting me take this one home with me.
