Reviewed from notes. Poured from wax-sealed 12 oz. bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter glass.

A: Pours a very deep, dark bronze to brown, quite hazy, with a thin off-white head and fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Sticky sweet malts, burnt caramel, booze and brandy, brown sugar, dark fruit, molasses and toffee. Fairly sweet but not cloying.

T: Sweet and sticky malts, molasses and brown sugar, and the restrained bourbon and cognac that adds to the flavors but doesn't dominate. Some ethanol sweetness, sticky toffee, rum raisins, and a touch of roasted malt bitterness adds a contrast near the finish.

M: Alcohol presence noticeable, but despite the barrels it doesn't seem "hot". Low carbonation sensation. Full-bodied, but not like stouts from Cigar City.

O: This was really quite good, though with the sweetness level I don't think I'd ever want more than 12 ounces at once - so they picked a good sized bottle to package the beer in. As the beer warms during the drink, it does open up and improve for sure - don't be in a hurry with this one.
