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 into tulip.
Celebrating my last day at work after being laid off.
A- Super murky, dark brown almost black pour. Tight bubbled, two finger light tan head. Loads of alcohol on the glass and minimal lacing.
S- The wallop of bourbon on the nose from three feet away is remarkable. Bourbon, brown sugar, plums, figs, vanilla, some chocolate and coffee. Burnt toffee, some alcohol with a loads bourbony goodness.
T- Bourbon right up front, dark stone fruits, some chocolate, a huge punch of vanilla on the tongue with bourbon and alcohol in the finish.
M- Medium body, medium to low carbonation, warming alcohol in the finish.
