A - Black. No head no lace. Nada.

S - Soy sauce, booze, hoppy , very very HOT.

T - Backed goods, sweet malts, soy sauce and a little hoppy bite.

M - Heavy body, fair carb and balance considering how huge.

D - This was my last taster of the night and it kicked my butt.

750ml into a snifter. 2012, batch 2.

A: Reddish black body with a small tan head.

S: Huge vanilla aroma, lightly astringent booze, milky chocolate, oaky bourbon. This is going to be a sweet beer.

T: Sweet raisins and chocolate hit the palate first. Cream, marshmallow, drying and buttery bourbon, a bit nutty, boozy warmth on the end.

M: Surprisingly light body, with a quick flash of carbonation.

O: An incredible dessert beer, with the vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon melding together seemlessly. Stay away if you don't like sweet beers.
