The moment I popped the cork on this one, I realized I couldn't go back. Go back to a time that this was sitting in my fridge, staring at me with its awesome, hilarious label. Taunting me.

A: The cork popped with a whimper rather than a bang. The beer is undeniably gorgeous. It's a dark brown with hints of gold, a no-nonsense barleywine look with head that just wants to be part of the fun, to varying degrees of success. Just too wonderful to look at.

S: Vanilla, oak, and raisins dominate the aroma, with an absolutely captivating finish of how-do-they-still-smell-so-good fresh hops. I would buy an air freshener for my car that smells like this.

T: My first sip sort of frightened me. I'm alone to enjoy this brew, and I know that my fiance wouldn't like this flavor bomb, but that doesn't curb my regret. I feel like Caligula drinking this without sharing. It does not allow for big sips: once it coats your tongue, the sweet and sour malty oaky business and citric hop quality doesn't allow you to take too much at once. One of the most full-bodied beers I have ever tasted. The alcohol is completely masked. I implore everyone to have at least a sip of this. And to think: I was saving my bottle of Labyrinth because I assumed it would be the better beer. I can't imagine this brewery making something that tastes better than this.

M: A bit syrupy, but in a pleasing way that counteracts the hop bite (This was barrel aged! How do they have such a fresh bite?!) and lends a lot of smoothness to the more astringently liquorish qualities of the bourbon flavor. What could have this alcohol-on-the-tongue dissolving feeling instead coats and pleases the mouth. Great stuff here.

D: It's a sipper. But at a price of $12-$18 per bottle depending on where you buy it, this still feels like an incredible bargain compared to some of the pretenders out there.

I would buy a case of this to pop open on every special occasion that I observe over the next ten years. It's that level of special.

3.28/5  rDev -16.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Served in 12oz goblet. Poured a nice, opaque mahogany-brown color with less than a half-inch of light tan head that had very good retention and pretty good lacing.

The aroma was mostly sweet malts, with a bit of a hop tang in the background. On the tongue, the beer was pretty much the same, with the addition of an odd "funk" in the middle. there a slight bitter and smoky finish.

The body was about average for the style, a little fuller than Bigfoot perhaps, and had a dry finish. Drinkability was OK, but I would probably only have 1 at a sitting. Overall, a nicely solid brew. Worth trying if you see it.

Serving type: on-tap
