750ml bottle poured at Christmas, perfect way to share with family.
This pours a really motor oil like brown black color, an agressive pour yields about a 3/4 finger of tan head that dissipates immediately. A ring of film sticks around the glass and spots of film are apparent on the top of the beer. Almost no carbonation, quite opaque, hints of reds and tans in the color. Smells heavily of bourbon and toasted smokey oak, with toffee, molasses and caramel rounding out a really nice blend of aromas. The flavor is exceptional, bourbon is definitely there, strong oak, mostly smoked or toasted oak, strong toffee, but sweet caramel and even a spicy molasses element, it definitely finishes with sweet alcohol, but no burn, only a slight warming. Perfect feel, smooth with no burn, creamy when it needs to be, decadent at times but still mild enough for anyone.
Verdict: This is exceptional, the flavors and aromas are amazingly complex, rich and balanced perfectly. Hats off to Patrick and anyone involved in the mastery of this blend.

Deep ruby red color. Very little head. No legs or lacing.
Tons of earthy, malty, agave, raisin (tons), vanilla, spice, pear, red apple, ginger, red wine, slight tartness.
Sweetness is mellowed by great boozieness. Amazingly blended. Nearly perfect in mouthfeel, but slight sharpness overtakes at the the on set. A bit raisin and green. Lots going on. Booze is forward, yet mild. Carbonation is very light and compliments nicely. Red wine barrel is nice.
Dances a smooth sweet line. Just before you see the booze the sweetness kicks in. A damn fine brew. I would love to treat this brew again. Highly recommended. Thanks for the share Bigaltemple!!
