Have been saving this one for the perfect snow day. Hence one arrives unexpected yet very welcome.

Complex aroma with strong notes of aged chocolate and alcohol followed by a soft vanilla presence and faint caramel.

Has been quite a while since I've had a beer of this heft, and must say I was unprepared for the frontal fusel alcohol assault. After regrouping and digging in, waves of sweet and dark chocolate were felt, followed by an array of maraschino cherry, black grape, vanilla, spice cake, grain and molasses flavors all slow down the throat.

Syrupy and heavy of course, but quit yer whinin'.

An intricate and challenging brew that takes a few dives to reach its depths. I recommend enjoying every moment, but don't forget to take your time while ascending for air.

2013 vintage.

Big, bold, thick, and black. Massive bourbon presence.

Outta freekin site this is good. Has replaced Berserker as " best ever".

Viscous, strong, sugary, fresh bourbon, aged bourbon, and bourbony hints of bourbon. mouthfeel still has active carbonation.

Vintage 2012.

In the category of thick, heavy, no holds barred RIS: this is fantastic. It is like BCBS x 1.5, eclipse x2. Wow.
