4.75/5 rDev +9.2%
Servign Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Dark as night, thick like syrup. Monster thick 2 inch head that formed like it was a nitro beer. Nice sticky lacing.
Smell - Huge about of barrel aged bourbon. Vanilla, raisin, plum, smoked malts. Some dark chocolate and booze round this one out.
Taste - Wow, such a great balance of whiskey, malts and dark fruits. Big, bold yet very easy to enjoy. Lots of vanilla mixed with raisin, plum and grapes. Dark Chocolate adds a nice sweet and bold flavor. Strange I really don't get much coffee flavor. Malts are roasted, and just work perfect with this beer.
Mouthfeel - Malts, whiskey and vanilla really nail the tongue. Palate gets chocolate, dark fruits and remaining malts and whiskey. Aftertaste is malty, whiskey and vanilla with dark fruits.
Overall - Simply amazing. Incredible balance along with huge flavors yet everything is tied together so well. The malts and chocolate balance out the whiskey, and the fruits provide bitter flavors. Another world class beer from hoppin frog.
