Wow. Vintage 2011, 50°F, poured into a snifter.

A: Corked/caged bottle. Pitch black pour, very little head, no lacing.

S: Dark fruits. Plum, rasin, cherry. Bourbon noticeable, boozy.

T: Pow. In your face, char, vanilla, bourbon, fruit. An orchestra of flavors, hard to dissect out.

M: Thick, creates lingering texture, smooth, and slippery. Warms the throat, and fills the head.

O: One of the most flavorful, balanced BBA offering I have had. Right up there with Black Note, BCBS, and Black Ops. I will find this one again...

A: Cork and cage add a nice touch, viscosity seems like an appropriate name given the apparent thickness of the beer, only a touch of head along the edge of the glass, dark brown to black – 4.00, S: Strong oak noticeable from a few feet away, bourbon is also present but a little more subdued, wonderful charring, tons of baker’s chocolate and vanilla – 4.75, T: Booze is very apparent, some bitter chocolate, rum soaked raisins, dark coffee and cream – 4.50, M: Creamy with slight prickliness from the alcohol, medium body – 4.25, D: The alcohol is a touch overwhelming but beyond this Older Viscosity is a standout beer – 4.00

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Had this at The Hulmeville Inn, PA.

A - Pitch black brew, viscous looking. No head, just slight lace.

S - Very aromatic. Big bourbon nose, vanilla syrup, rum raisin ice cream. Sweet booze.

T - Delicious, gorgeously smooth/silky bourbon. Plenty of sweet notes, like vanilla bean, dark syrup. You get the bourbon barrel dryness and a subtle bitter note. Hops are virtually unrecognizable. This one is dark, thick and sweet.

M - Very soft and smooth. Liquid silk, it feels great and goes down easy. Warming and soothing.

O - I don't even like bourbon but this beer is awesome. Very, very well done. It's intensely delicious and enjoyable.

Pours jet black with a small tan head. In the aroma, oaky, roasty, and big malts. In the taste, big alcohol, dry oakiness, rich and malty. A small bite and a medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a dry roasted malt in the aftertaste. Big, rich, roasty, a bit boozy, but great.
