Fathers day present for me from my wife. Pours a dark caramel color. Not much head, but a bit of crackles from the carbonation. Smells BIG! Lots of alcohol, bourbon a bit of caramel and dark fruit. Taste is big bourbon. The base beer is hidden because of too much bourbon, but I like it. Full mouthfeel, smooth yet harsh. Overall, this needs a ton of time. Like, 2 years at least. Very good still, because I like bourbon heavy beers. However, with a few years, I think things will blend together better instead of being one big hot mess.

750ml waxed bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14, cheers Adam for sharing (from notes)
A clear brownish amber, a couple bubbles under a thin film, not much for lace but some wide legs going down the side
S vanilla, lots of sweet bourbon, a pile of brown sugar, a little wood, raisins, there's some booze but very well hidden all things considered, faint molasses, caramel galore, more vanilla and bourbon, more like a liqueur then beer but its working wonders for me
T thankfully it mimics the smell, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, its sweet but manageable, tastes as good as it smells
M thick and syrupy, a little heat but I'd never guess its over 15%, sticky on the lips and a sweet woody finish
O all the important parts are well taken care of, smells and tastes awesome, a little sweet and boozy but its a minor complaint
I'd lay this down for a decade if I had a bottle, drinking well now but this one will be something special down the road, I'm just happy I got to try it today, delicious stuff
