MY 1000TH BEER HAD ON BA!

***2011 Vintage***

Thanks to Masterski and F2brewers for each getting me a bottle. Not sure who gave me this vintage.

Poured from a 750ml bottle and enjoyed last Tuesday ;)

Thick, viscous, black body. Surprisingly, some frothy foam in the pour but dissipates quickly. Aroma is stellar; rum cake, ,molasses, sweet bourbon, maple syrup. Aroma jumps as soon as i uncap the bottle. Flavor follows the same path as the aroma. Fudge cake, bourbon, maple, maybe not as intense as the aroma. Very sweet and that's a lot coming from me. Feel straddles the line between beer and spirits. Very special and happy to have had the chance.
