P: Pours a pitch Black Sea capped with a billowing espresso froth. Dense and great retention.
S: Roasted pecans glazed with brown sugar and molasses. Dark chocolate, rye bread, dried wheat grain and play dough. Swirling really releases the sweet bourbon aroma.
T/M: Sweet succulent confectionary sugar, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits are up first. Followed closely by bitter spicy rye, cinnamon, roasted pecan praline and a grainy earth tone to round out the mix. Bourbon swirls around dodging in and out coming and going. After the spicy carbonation slows its attack the mouthfeel and taste is similar to melted Dutch chocolate. Vanilla bean, no bake cookies and old wood. Subtly prickly thick n chewy body.
O: This makes me want to relax under a blanket on a cold day and watch "Stand By Me". Great warming sensation created by the boozy bourbon and decadent pecan praline. Spices mellow out the sweet and craft a beautiful beer. Gordie Lachance would have approved of this intoxicating collaboration.
