12oz bottle poured into A Jackie O's snifter at 58 degrees.Batch 79.
A. Dark brown with little ruby hues.Clear,when held up to the light, it shines right through. No head to speak of,just some bubbles. Good alchohol legs. No lacing.
S. First off this smells very sweet. I get sugary raisons and plums. I get an awesome leather notes also get some tobacco and a touch of vanilla.
T. Wow! So much going on here, not as sweet as I was expecting either. I get the sweet dark fruits first then I get this wonderfull tobacco and leather and little underlying roastiness. Some faint vanilla in the end.You can taste the booze throughout but not overpowering at all.
M. Creamy and coating,I would say heavy but not thick. Leaves a sweet kind of earthy wet tobacco aftertaste. Not alot of carbonation. but it does not need it .
Overall This is a wow beer for me so damn good and complex. I certainly want to get some earlier batches. A definate must try!

3.9/5 rDev -8.7%

Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
