Aroma of raisins, honey, faint vinous, caramel, candy, spice. Taste cooked sugar, wood, faint vanilla, figs, dry finish. Excellent!

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty brown color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with some bourbon notes and some residual sugars is quite complex. Taste is a complex mix of bourbon with light residual candi sugar with some, fruity ester and some dry fruits notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice level of complexity thought a fuller body would have help appreciate this even more.

750, brewed 2008, bottled 2012.

A: Hazy chestnut body under a finger of dense tan head. Good retention for the strength, spotty lace. Attractive.

S: Caramel, red wine, vanilla, and dark fruit. Very nice.

T: Sweet malt up front, followed closely by fruity wine, corny Bourbon, vanilla oak, and a long bittersweet finish. Hugely complex, very tasty.

M: Full bodied, well carbonated. Great.

O: Awesome beer. Both barrels come through beautifully. Definitely a sipper, but admirably smooth.

Cheers!
