My favorite beer. So damn complex and drinkable, huge aroma and flavor. As good as any beer I've ever had. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, dark northwest cherries, freshly picked blackberries, chocolate, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Yea I said all that. Beyond smooth, and drinks much bigger than the listed 9%. Must be some damn good barrels, and the base beer is also amazing. Reasonably priced and overall perfect every time. Yes, perfect.

Tasted On: 07-20-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Nonic pint
Purchased: Received in a trade

Appearance: Dark brown beer, nearly black, with reddish highlights. The tan head is thin and leaves small traces of lace on the glass.

Smells: Oak and vanilla, dark cherries, and aromas of alcohol, including some bourbon sweetness but also fruitiness of something like a cognac.

Taste: A wide variety of flavors include licorice, roasted malts, dark bittersweet chocolate, cherries, raisins, figs and vanilla. I don't taste much in the way of hops.

Mouthfeel: Very thick in body, with low carbonation. The finish is sweet of dark fruits, molasses and vanilla notes.

Overall: Quite a hefty brew, I found it to be a delightful sipper although maybe a tad too sweet for my tastes.

Thanks to Treyliff for the beer!
