4.58/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours brown with a creamy medium off-white head, good thick lace.
S: Gorgeous barrel character and vanilla, amontillado sherry, molasses, gobs of caramel. Fantastic.
T: Oaky vanilla malt with a lot of complexity. Semi-sweet overall, heavy caramel, brown sugar.
M: Full-bodied, soft carbonation, certainly hot at times but never distracts from the beer like it did with Coton.
O: The best fresh of the anniversary beers from these guys, the solera system is really starting to round out the beers and making them much more approachable fresh. Just straight up tasty.

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
