look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Looks like this review (#299) will elevate me to BA Zealot status! 2007 vintage poured (finally) into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance is super dense black-brown hue, nice layer of brown creamy head dissipates to a thin layer of spotty bubbles, thick lacing on the glass
Smell is initially characterized by absolutely delicious chocolate malts accentuated by stiff bourbon, woody oak, vanilla extract, and molasses, also present are tones of coffee and roast malts, dark fruits, and toffee, absolutely amazing!
Initial taste follows the nose and is comprised of cocoa-sweet malts, bourbon-whiskey wood, and a tinge of dark fruits, espresso-like malts enter midway along with vanilla, cherries, caramel, toffee and brown sugar, finishes with an emphasis on the dark fruits and bourbon
Mouthfeel is full-bodied, silky velvet-like texture takes and edge of the omnipresent bourbon edge, mild-moderate carbonation
Drinkability is high despite the 12%abv, an amazing profile of malts leads the charge here and is balanced out by the dark fruit and bourbon/wood accents, I can see this beauty only improving over time as the hotness will likely subside, no surprise here, I have drank the Kool-Aid and readily admit that Older Viz lives up to its billing, get some if you can!

A: Pour from a cork topped bottle to a snifter glass. Very fluid, black color with hardly any head or carbonation.
S: Best quality of this beer. Caramel, molasses, chocolate, and bourbon booziness.
T: Can taste the alcohol a little too much. Instead of the bourbon giving a nice warming taste, the booze overwhelms. Can taste chocolate, coffee, and caramel.
M: Thought mouthfeel would be best quality, but ended up leaving a lot to be desired.
O: Definitely not worth the money. Overall, it is a good, not great sipping beer. Better when warm.
