Been waiting a long time for this one. Here's the deal - last year, 2009, I had my order form all filled out for a case of The Perfect Storm. Cases lasted for at least a week or so at the brewery. After mulling it over for a few days, I decided not to spend the cash on an entire case. I regretted that day until about two weeks ago when I got the call that it was my turn to buy a case of MoAS 2010. My second chance!! Glazeman and I were thrilled. I'm glad I took the opportunity this time.
A - Very nice. Dark crimson with a lighter rose colored hue on the edges. Not brown. One finger head that fades to a rim of bubbles.
S - Very complex. The bourbon, caramel, butter, florals, and BOOZE blend together beautifully. Earthy, citrus hops through out.
T - Rich and delicious. Cold Friday night watching the Blackhawks beat the Wings - for this occasion, this is the PERFECT brew. Bourbon through out. The front is candied almonds and the finish is burnt roasts. The hops are much more pronounced in the smell than in the taste.
M - Really great for the style. I rarely rate generously in this category, but the flatness up front and the light bubbles near the finish do an excellent job of bringing all of the flavors to fruition.
D - The taste of this beer is outstanding. I love it. That being said, it is really hot. Ton of booze. The alcohol burn limits the drinkability, but this is still an outstanding beer.

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.
