The cork was a bitch to get off. I had to resort to a pair of pliers to get it started. Then I was able to work it off the rest of the way using my thumb. Pretty measly pop when it finally went. The cork flew a full lfoot.
Pours a very dark brown with ruby edges into my oversized wine glass .A 2 finger brownish head rises above, leaving some sticky lacing for awhile before dissipating into a ring around the glass and a bit of swirling haze on the surface.
The aroma, not surprisingly, is of coffee and dark chocolate with a hint of bourbon and sweet malts.
The taste is rather sweet, but fairly tart as well, especially at first. Dark chocolate and coffee again. The bourbon is more pronounced here, with the addition of dark fruits and tart cherries. Some light bitterness in the end and a definite taste of alcohol,.
Medium thick bodied. Syrupy and fairly smooth with light carbonation and a nice burn from the alcohol.
This is a vesry enjoyable brew. More tart than what I am used to in this style, but it's well balanced. Even the alcohol, though it's noticable, is not over the top. A good winter warmer.
