On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse on 12/27/2011

Served in a snifter.

A: Jet black silky appearance with little head. Slight lace along the side of the glass.

S: WOW. A very resonant french toast, presence with strong cognac, toasted oat, and french vanilla notes. This things smells amazing. No more words. A noticeable alcohol presence, but that is expected with something of this caliber

T: Tastes like a bourbon stout should. Silky, yet strong chocolate, toasted coffee bean, and bourbon/vanilla throughout. Not for the faint of heart, this things packs a taste and profile punch.

M: Feels like a very fine aged Tequila/Rum. Small bite to the feel, but eases out with the vanilla/chocolate profile.

O: A great wintertime warmer. It may be a bit boozy for some, but a few snifters of this will lessen the chill this winter. A-.

Serving type: on-tap
