Bottle courtesy of mran01. 2010 bottled, sampled 4/20, split a few ways amongst friends.
Pours a very viscous dark brown color with a surpirsingly sturdy small tan head that receded very slowly leaving quality lacing on the glass.
Aromas begin with super high cacoa dark chocolate, and bourbon induced vanilla and oak. Then you get some solid dark fruits and hints of brown sugar sweetness which emerge more and more as it warms.
The tastes follow the nose with huge rich dark chocolate, lesser baker's milk chocolate, huge vanilla and lesser bourbon/oak tannic flavors. Tons of chocolate, dark fruits and brown sugar and caramelized malts emerge more and more as it warms.
The mouthfeel is quite full bodied with moderate carbonation. For begin so huge of the beer the 3 years of age have allowed the sweetness to mellow and the Belgian yeast to dry out the finish slightly. Make no mistake this is still a sweet beer but no where near as sweet as a fresh bottle would be.
Overall, this is truely a tribute to American brewing. Taking a Port-leveled ABV beer with such a sweet, dark malt base and creating a drinkable offering using Belgian yeast is truely amazing. A must try for any true beer geek.
