batch #5

a - poured a one finger thick creamy coffee-colored head into a snifter that left good lace and a thin sheet throughout. dark color almost red wine like.
s - chocolate, dark berries and plums.
t - dark fruit, bourbon woodiness with a hint of tartness.
m - creamy and smooth.
o - really terrific sipper. excellent beer and complex.

Bottle poured into a MadTree Snifter

A: Pours a dark brown, molasses colored body. Yields a light khaki colored thin head that slides down the glass quickly with a minimal amount of retention. Leaves a thin layer of retention. Pours like a strong ale or a scotch ale.

S: The waft in this one is really nice. Bourbon is subtle and not overbearing at all, with a strong berry aroma. There is some oak. Vanilla and some walnut and toasted almonds.

T: Whoa baby this is different than I was expecting from the nose. Bourbon is coming through perfectly upfront. There's a strong sweet berry flavor that slaps you right across the face mid-drink that finishes sharp with a boozy warmth and toffee.

M: Full body. Moderately high carbonation. Sticky. Boozy.

O: A solid brew. Not at all what I was expecting, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in this case. I wasn't expecting such a strong berry presence, but overall it meshes together well. I suspect this was a very different beer fresh. Glad I got a chance to try this one.

love this beer batch 4 is the best in my opinion. it has alot of sourness and balance. love drinking it especially in the colder months you cant go wrong. black in color very bourbony, good viscosity and overall taste. one bottle will get tipsy quick.
