Been in the cellar for 11months now and I’ve been craving something that will ‘wow me’ so I think it’s about time I pop the cork on this baby. Poured into a Stone Old Guardian goblet.
Nice head retention relative to the style and the color of the head is a delicious looking chocolate/mocha. Dark in color with hues of brownish-red when held to the light.
The nose is simply heavenly. Essence of barrel aging right up front and in your face. Detecting much more of the Angel’s Share than the Serpent. Oak, spirits, dried sweetened prunes, woody vanilla, chocolate, toffee. Taste follows the nose.
Creamy with great body and gentle warmth. An ever-so-slight coffee dryness that lingers on the palate between sips.
What a treat. Wish I had more. Like… a lot more! I’m gonna go ahead and say this is in my top 5 all-time. Worth every high-priced penny.

The beer comes in a dark black color.
The aroma has oak aging, medium amount of bourbon, with a lighter alcohol note, charred cherry wood, a tinge of fruitness.
The flavor follows of with charred wood in the front, lightly roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and bourbon. It tastes very much like a lighter version of BCBS. Alcohol comes through on the finish to clean off the palate.
A wonderfully delicious barrel aged brew.
