Pours a healthy head, strong lacing which eventually settle into a ring. Dark mahogany color.
Caramel, raisin, chocolate, vanilla.
RICH. Creme brulee, vanilla, maple, bits of chocolate contrasted with cinammon and notes of orange. The bourbon is in the background, quickly helping to destroy my senses.
Alcohol is negligible, bits of it hit in the finish - behind the many layers of thick caramel and vanilla.
So yeah, quite good and apparently versatile. Paired it with some aged Gouda and cheddar and it was outstanding, also could serve as a dessert beer - I'd pour this on vanilla ice cream like chocolate syrup. Make sure you share this one....if possible.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Delirium snifter on 2/2/13
Shared at a tasting by Spider889. Thanks Chris.
A) Dark, dense rusted brown. Not much in terms of foam; just a little around the collar. Sediment in the bottom.
S) Molasses, brown sugar, oak char, dark berries, leather, caramel, toffee. For 14.5% abv it doesn't smell boozy at all.
T) The taste is hotter with alcohol all over the finish. Sugary and sticky. Toasted bread, molasses, caramel, nail polish and modest oak.
M) Full, slick sugary/alcohol feel. Carbonation is quite low. Overall, it is too heavy of a feel.
D) Drinkable as a slow sipper. It is nice in that it isn't incredibly hot.
