From the HotD tasting room, 12oz pour
A: Deep, deep brown with a 1 finger mocha head. Pretty decent retention for a strong barrel-aged beer.
S: Really heady chocolate and coffee aromas. Lighter notes of bourbon and oak.
T: Rich chocolate, a little alcohol heat and a bit of wood in the finish. Surprisingly restrained for having spent 3 years in the barrels. As it get up to room temperature at the end of the glass, the alcohol gets a bit more upfront, but never overwhelming.
M: Rich and heavy, but not at all sticky or cloying; hits the perfect balance for a sipper. Light carbonation.
O: This is a spectacular beer, utterly delicious and perfectly balanced. A benchmark for barrel-aged beers. I'll be at the tasting room any time Alan puts this on.
Serving type: on-tap
