Bottle run no.1, 2013.

A - Bonfire-log black. Thin, fleeting ochre head.

S - Vanilla ice cream. Sweet, sweet bourbon. Caramel. Soft bourbon notes reward inquisitive sniffing. Coconut candy.

T - Reprising the nose, with a chorus of sweet and mellow bourbon. Velvety cocoa powder. No smoke, no char, no peat. Lightly toasted malt, but not particuarly toasty otherwise. I would have liked a little more of these classic stout flavours to go along with those already offered, but its delicious nonetheless.

M - This beer is a slender dancer albeit with great balance.

O - What this beer lacks in depth and layering it makes up for due to its remarkable poise. It hides its abv. wonderfully; I have never had such a strong beer with so little heat. Put simply this is a beer with sweet, mellow-bourbon flavours in which all the elements are beautifully harmonized. Perhaps the first beer I've head where the overall score is higher than any of the constituent scores. Very,very good.
