Meu Deus! It's on-tap at the source! On to the beer:
It's brown in color, with almost no head from the moment I received it, but for a beer this strong, I was more lenient. It gives some legs after each moment I'm done sipping. The aroma is phenominal, as expected. The Bruery never dissapoints in this aspect as long as it involves a barrel. Raisins, boozes, grapes, toasted sugar....yum!
A little boozy, but still very tasty stuff. Not boozy as the advertized alcohol. A sweet tasting beer, no surprise there. It's grapes, bourbon, hints of vanilla, lots of toasted sugar...tasty. A little carbonated, but for the most part a viscous, fat liquid that smothers your palate. There's no need to rush the drinking of this one, but you could if you choose to do so.
Most breweries would be delighted to have a beer this great, but for The Bruery, it's another high quality barrel aged beer. A highly recommended beer to try if you're lucky to find it.
Serving type: on-tap

4.35/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #633.
Appearance - Deep amber. Nice khaki head. Medium collar.
Smell - Lots of bourbon. Sharp liquor aroma. Oak. Vanilla. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Slight oxidation.
Taste - Bourbon is first. Brown sugar. Oxidized flavors lend sherry and just a bit of cardboard, but I think it works really well. Bourbon comes back aggressively.
Mouthfeel - Immensely boozy. Medium carbonation. Sticky sweet.
Overall - This beer ages so nicely. Delicious.
