Quite simply, this is a stunning beer, and an absolute treat for anyone who can find it. The smell and flavor are a wonderful orchestra of different notes, perfectly complex and works on an amazing level. Oak, vanilla, cherry, some mild citrus all wrapped up in some bourbon. The taste has amazing brown sugar sweetness, bourbon, white oak, cherries, fig, plum, melons. The most amazing thing is there is not a trace of booze anywhere in this beer which is simply stunning considering the staggering 15.5% ABV. It'll feel like hot water in your stomach, but there is not booze to be found. One of the best beers I've ever had.
