Black cap!

Pours a dark brown with hardly any head at all. I poured it a bit warmer – around 50 degrees, and the heat from the alcohol was definitely on the nose, along with some boozy liquor, sweet bread and whiskey. Taste was a lot like the smell, but with even more added complexity. Almost reminiscent of a scotch ale – a little Backwoods Bastard in there somewhere. Sweet, sugary malts, bourbon as well as some vanilla, oak and coconut on the back end. Some burn of alcohol is present, but in the most decadent way possible. This one was a delicious sipper. I'd easily pay $20/bomber on another one of these any day, and that doesn't happen too often.

Black cap. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. I had hoped to age it longer but the bottle took a spill in my trunk on the way home and the cap started to leak.
A: Mahogany color with a thin head that quickly disappears
S: Sweet cherry, molasses, prune, Belgian yeast, vanilla and whiskey
T: Matches the nose. Tons and tons of cherry pie filling. Underneath that distinct prune along with molasses, vanilla, brown sugar and a bit of Belgian yeast/fruitiness on the finish
M: This is definitely a big beer. Very sweet, the alcohol is there but not oppressive. It should mellow out with age
O: Complex and quite tasty. I do wish I could have aged it as I think it will integrate and gain complexity. Then again I'll just try to find another bottle
