Thanks once again to Michael (yourefragile) for hitting this beer I've been wanting to try, awesome.

A: Nice blackish color but very clear brown highlights on the edges and a ring of head, nice lacing. Pretty.

S: Lots of stone fruit and some malt/sweet notes, barley, just a little chocolate powder and a bit of bourbon, not nearly as much as I expected.

T: Some chocolate powder, really nice bourbon soaked malt and barley, true stout flavors punch through. Quite interesting and rich. Just a little sweet, mostly alcohol sweet from the spirits, but not hot. Savory in some ways like a bit of autumn fire, quite nice.

M: Semi thick, not very hot, leaves the tongue tingling with flavor.

Overall very nice.

Bottle #1098 poured into a small Bell's snifter.

A - Poured with tan head which turned into lacing with some bubbles. Looks marginally better than the Elijah Craig.

S - Light bourbon, dark roasted malts, light vanilla.

T - Oak, some toffee/vanilla, chocolate towards the end with a dry finish. Flavors blend well. I'm getting a slight amount of hotness as well. The toffee/vanilla in the finish is very nice.

M - A little thinner than I'd hoped.

O - Pretty good. A little hot right now, I'll see how it is next year.
