Unsure as to the date.
A: Pours a deep reddish-amber. Lightly hazy pour. Mid-sized and fizzy tan head. Head fades out pretty quickly, almost soda-like. No sign of lacing at all.
S: Lots of white chocolate and white raisins too. Like white chocolate-covered raisins in fact. Light sting of bourbon with a little caramel and more dark fruits. Maybe a little bit of wheat? Pretty much just smells like straight-up white chocolate raisins for the most part. Pleasant and unique. Quite sweet too.
T: Taste is very similar to the aroma. It's all white raisin with white chocolate. Raisins are surprisingly tart too. Sort of a light toffee from the bourbon coats it. Toffee heavier in the middle along with a heavy wheatiness that pokes through in the finish and aftertaste. Heavy drying oaky tannins in the aftertaste as well, lingering around between sips with a bunch of white raisin. Surprisingly not as sweet as I expected, especially given the ABV and the chocolate/vanilla aging. Not much sign of alcohol as you'd expect, but it does warm the belly quickly.
M: Heavy but not overly thick or cloying. It's a big one. Surprisingly drying too.
O: Very interesting brew. I can't tell if I like it. Barrel aging isn't super heavy but supplies a nice layer of complexity. Even the chocolate and vanilla isn't overpowering. The raisins really stand out for me initially though. Aftertaste is a bit rough, that's my only real complaint. Very unique, strong and complex brew at the same time. Never had anything like this. Making a beer that can actually produce the flavors of white chocolate is an accomplishment in itself.
