Shared with bro-inlaw in two RR BA stems. Cork really popped out and said "Merry Christmas you shithead sinners!" Small amount of ooze but settled down, thank goodness. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Big head that settled down...beige colored. Deep aromas of vanilla and bourbon, with a slice of pecan praline pie. Truly intoxicating and exotic, to the point that I just could not pull my nose out. Big, malty flavor with some plums thrown in. A touch of hot caramel sweetness, vanilla, bourbon somehow nicely blended together. A noticeable carbonation poke on the tongue. Brightness felt in the mouthfeel, quite effervescent. Beige fizz ring stays on top of the glorious liquid throughout.

Really wish I had more than 12 ounces to share...truly special.

2009 Edition (375ml bottle)
Small pop of cork. Poured into RR BA glass...flat as a 10 year old girl. Dark brown like a cup of coffee. Good flavor, but very sad tasting. The beer is crying. C+
