What a great, extremely smooth beer.

Four Roses is already one of my favorite bourbons, and, as far as Four Roses is concerned, I love the smooothness and sweetness of the bourbon character. I can't say that I can tell this is Four Roses from drinking the beer, but I can tell that it is a quality Bourbon.

Great beer, reminiscent of bourbon county barleywine. Just overall amazing.

SMOOTH and DEEP is the key descriptor here, with just a touch of fruitiness that characterizes Four Roses bourbon

2013

A - poured a one finger thick coffee-colored head into a snifter that left great lacing throughout. The body was dark black.
S - chocolate, roast coffee, bourbon and vanilla.
T - coffee, chocolate and bourbon.
M - medium and slick.
O - excellent. Lots of great stout flavors and the bourbon is done well.

Black with retaining off white head.

Sweet bourbon.

A Black Tuesday that's easier on the alcohol, has the same phenols. Finish is earthy, pasty which is off putting. Otherwise, staunch vanilla highlights the barrel aging. Better with smaller sips. Roasted malts are subdued. Worth about a fifth of the price.

Dense, smooth, just right.
