2011 Vintage Bottle # 1449
A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a deep dark brownish black hue with a good solid almost 2 finger deep milk chocolate head that fades to leave light side lacing and a nice thin cloud. Very nice.
S - Fearing infection I take a deep sniff. Ah, no sign of it! Nice bakers chocolate, slight roasty malts, and good whiskey notes. Not boozy at all just solid whiskey aroma. Faint barrel as well. Again, quite solid.
T - FUCK. Pretty sure I'm getting some infection here as my first taste is....sour! Damnit. Tastes like chocolate covered cherries, some wine notes. Not getting much whiskey at all. Fainter barrel notes but yeah, this is very infected. The nose trolled me.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated albeit a bit on the sharp side.
O - Overall I knew there was a risk with this bottle, still I could not smell any hints of it then I take a sip and WHAM, disappointment. Oh well, looking forward to revisiting this considering I just drain poured this whole bottle.
