650ml 2012 bomber poured into tulip 17/12/13, thanks OakedCanuck for the long time want
A reddish brown that I can just barely see through when I hold it to the light, fast falling three fingers of noisy tan foam leaves no lace but that's to be expected at this strength, some wide legs and a few streams of tiny bubbles going up the side make it look like a slow boiling pot of oil
S lots of brown sugar, some anise, wood, bourbon, vanilla, toffee and caramel, some booze and I get some sawdust of all things, some sugar coated raisins burnt marshmallow, and spiced rum
T more boozy bourbon, lots of toffee, some fruity notes, a little coco, leather, plenty of booze and wood, everything I smells still there but with some welcome additions
M not as thick as expected but quite syrupy and sticky, lots of heat and a little tannin, has enough bubbles to give it some life but it stops short of creamy
O booze is noticeable throughout but that's my only complaint, everything else is working well for this one but I wouldn't put it as high as it is on the top 250 list
I'd love to revisit this one a few years down the road, shes a big ass boozy sipper and If I had a second bottle I'd sit on it for ages. Its a great beer don't me wrong I just don't think its built to be drank fresh, and by fresh I mean a little over a year old.

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.
