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.

Pours an opaque brown very close to black. The first pour us very heady. Thick bubbly mocha colored foam. Surprising for a beer of such alcohol content. Eventually dissolves to a thick ring around the glass.
The aroma is deep and complex. Fruit notes are most prominent. Classic english barleywine style dark fruits are clearly represented in the form of dates, raisins and figs. Secondly the aroma of warm toffee makes it seem like it will be a thick, sticky and sweet treat. As it warms to the appropriate/suggested temperature the barrel notes come through more clearly; Oak, vanilla and caramel.
Sweet malty character on the tip of the tongue. Bright crystal malts shine through in the form of buttered toast, cocoa powder and brown sugar. Fruit flavors of cherry and prune juice come through mid palate along with a peppery spice from the noticeable alcohol. Barrel notes come through quickly after with deep caramel, oak and vanilla. Slight notes of bourbon come through on the finish.
M - medium, very close to full bodied. Viscous texture with a slightly watery edge. High carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer. So smooth but complex. I'd gladly buy another one to enjoy for next year.
