Fruet, whooo! Thank god we got this in Indiana!
This beer pours a thick and syrupy maple syrup brown in color with no head or carbonation hut plenty of residual sugar. The nose features plenty of sweet malt, bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark fruits, maple and molasses. It is right on par with Bourbon Barrel Old Stock and BB4D. The flavors are very nice as well. It is huge and sticky with loads of residual sugar. It features nice bourbon, vanilla, oak, molasses, maple syrup, figs, raisins, and toffee. It is very flavorful and coats your palate despite a lower end medium bodied mouthfeel. This one is a sipper hut you don't get any booziness. Overall this is a great beer and fantastic old ale.

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
