12oz bottle into HoTD tulip at the brewery. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a ruddy caramel color with a faint bubbly collar for a head. The bottom of the bottle is pretty chunky, that left a ton of heavy floaters in the glass.
S:I get notes of booze soaked fruits, caramel, sweet bourbon, dates, spicy barrel, and juicy candied peaches and cherries. Very sweet overall.
T: Sweet caramel and toast, bourbon barrel, currents, leather and tobacco up front. Very smooth and integrated. I get notes of vanilla, spice, cherry, honey, and chocolate in the finish, with lingering bourbon, slight cherry, and tons of leather in the aftertaste.
M: Thick and chewy mouthfeel, slick and low carbonation, tingly and sweet. Sips very well, not hot at all.
O: Amazing flavor, great barrel character with sweet fruits. Fantastic, a real treat.

This was a supertreat! Got a big bottle from a good and well known beerfriend, Bill Young. Shared this bottle at the 2014 Borefts beerfestival in Holland. Increadibly balanced beer with real chunks of fruit in it.
