2013 bomber, poured into a tulip

A- Pours a burnt orange, with rosy hues. A really unique and beautiful color. Very light tan head retains a little.

S- A bit of peach and caramel notes. Boozy aroma stings the nose.

T- Light caramel notes, with a bit of a fruit character. A little burnt vanilla, and oak. Booze as well.

M- Full body, velvety. Carbonation is subtle but leaves a little tingle in the mouth. Boozy burn finish.

O- The booze is quite noticeable, but this was a ver great sipper, with lots of depth in flavor. Beautiful color.
