look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a snifter on 4/25/12
With much appreciation to PDXHops for giving me a bottle
Split with MbpBugeye
A) Medium brown pour. In the glass the beer has a gorgeous deep ruby hue (especially when held to the light). The beer fostered about 1/4th inch head but it dissipated quickly leaving only a ring of retention and a few lily pads. No lace.
S) The aroma is dense with notes of raisins, molasses, prune, caramel, bread, butter toffee and tobacco. Overtones of wood with a sturdy booze note across the board. The barrel characteristics emerge as it warms taking a more prominent roll. There is faint vanilla as well.
T) The taste is comparably deep. Deep, and rather sugary (which I reckon is appropriate in this case). Hints of chocolate, molasses and caramel. On the back end, the sugars are a bit toasty too. Dark fruit notes. The barrel has blended in very well - the oak actually pulls a higher card than the whiskey. Vanilla creeps in as it warms.
M) Full, slick body with some granular undercurrents. Moderately low carbonation that mellows a bit, but always maintains a bite. Some heat on the finish.
O) This is the kind of beer you want to drink and not write about. I screwed that up big time.

22oz bottle poured at 41 F into a large chalice. Bottled on date is 12.03.13.
Pours dark brown, but translucent, with little or no head, not much carbonation. Doesn't look cloudy, just dark. Smell is mostly alcohol for me (although my wife can't smell it). I get dark fruit, a little smoke. Yeast. Overripe fruit.
Taste is hella sweet. Some alcohol, masked well by the incredible sweetness. Some smokey flavor. Woody. Something is really nice about this, but I can't nail it down with a descriptor. Maybe some slight vanilla.
Mouthfeel is silky and smooth. Overall, I like this beer, but I still can't describe why.
