12oz bottle poured into HotD tulip at the tasting room - 2011 bottle
Inky blacked out pour, completely opaque in color with a thin layering of tanned head. Collar of film retains with some streaking of legs on the glass while drinking.
Rich, sweet and boozy in the nose with a peppering of dark fruits including raisins, dates and figs. Soft smokiness coupled with bourbon warmth, vanilla and oaky char. Truly wonderful.
I immediately wanted to dive headlong into the glass - rich layering of sweet bourbon tones, roasted dark malts and candied fruits. Booze-soaked dates and figs with raisin and pleasantly understated leathery smoke. Heavily layered malt, warming and chewy throughout while drinking. Finishes with alcohol, oak and vanilla.
Fuller medium body, softer carbonation, chewy and soft on the tongue. Holy crap, these barrel-aged HotD beers are seriously out of this world. Between the Cherry Adam and this I was reeling, immediately fawning all over the place, telling people how great it was. Complex, warm and explosively flavorful. I want more.
