On-tap at The Bruery, thought I'd never get to try this one,
A: Pours a deep brown with a colaesque head, solid retention.
S: Classic Bruery barrel character. Are they classic after 2 years? Rich amounts of vanilla and wood, whiskey, sweet malt, great.
T: Heavy dark fruit which was recognized in regular Coton but given the death nell by the alcohol. Very sweet malt/molasses, prune heavy, raisins/Amarone with the whiskey, a great flavour, for me though, just missing a WOW factor to go 5.
M: Very smooth, full-bodied, creamy. Viscous and elegant on the tongue.
D: Another high alcohol beauty from The Bruery. Having only had unaged Coton before, the need for barrel aging was evident. This is so much more drinkable young than regular Coton, but I think a beer that can certainly improve from intensive aging.

4.35/5 rDev -1.1%

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.
