2011 Vintage

A - Pours pitch black with a small and fizzy chocolate-milk colored head. Fades pretty quickly, leaving almost no lacing.

S - Chocolate, molasses, caramel, vanilla, oak, and a good dose of Bourbon. Bourbon does not overwhelm as I was expecting.

T - Lots of chocolate with bourbon , vanilla and licorice.. As it warms, the dark fruits and sweet brown sugar makes it more complex. A mild alcohol burn is there as a reminder to take your time sipping it.

M - Mouthfeel is nice an coating, oily, slight carbonation. Alcohol is a bit warm but fits the intensity of this beer perfectly.

O - Amazing beer and the best I've had that's over 15% ABV. Can't wait to try Chocolate Rain next.
