A bottle from 2011 shared by Andrewinski1
A - Deep and dark. No light getting through. Small amount of lingering tan head. All the way to the end of the glass, but without much lacing.
S - Smooth, chocolate aroma with definite notes of wood aging and dark fruits. Lots of delicious booziness.
T - Everything you'd expect from the nose. Boozey, bourbon character, with some chocolate and dried fruits. Just the slightest touch of roast in the background to keep it from being too cloying. Really incredible stuff.
M - Full bodied, without being chalky or oily. Definitely a sipping beer.
O - I'll be honest: while I am a sucker for double IPA and aggressive beers on the opposite end of the spectrum, I also like aggressively boozey beers. This is one of the latter. If you don't dig imperial stout and Belgian quads/DSAs, don't bother with this beer. but if you do dig boozey beers that aren't necessarily balanced by hop bitterness, jump all over this stuff. Definitely a candidate for aging. I bet after 2 or 3 years it would be magical.
