Poured into a snifter
A poured about a 1 finger head which dissipated and left a foam ring which hung around throughout. Lots of legs on this thing. Deep hazy brownish red color. Sorta resembles fat bastards stool sample
S lots of strong scents. A very strong aroma. Its familiar but I can't place it. Definitely oaky, almonds, some alcohol is detectable. Maybe a touch of coffee or chocolate. Definitely smells complex
T follows the nose for the most part. the taste starts with an oaky almond thing followed by lots of sweet dark fruits on the back. Can taste the alcohol and definitely feel a warming in the chest. Again its complex and the flavors are very strong I just don't love it. Its a sipper.
M more carbonated than I was expecting which I think really helps the drinkability and to mellow the beer out a bit.
O this is clearly a very well crafted beer but personally I just don't love the flavors. I enjoyed it but couldn't give it an "outstanding" rating as I doubt I'd drink it again.
Bottom Line: a well crafted unique beer with flavors that just aren't my thing

Bottle split with my dad.
A dark brown, clear at first, with a dense, light brown head with decent retention and nice legs, this looks solid. The nose is great, as is usual for the series. Boozy caramel sweetness with vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit and brown sugar, this smells great. The palate opens full and sticky sweet with a big bourbon booziness, vanilla, mild oak tannins and fruit. Candied figs, prunes, brown sugar, jaggery are all present. Full in body with moderate carbonation, this beer has a long, sweet finish. Enjoyable.
