Bottle from nerd...thanks man!! Poured from a 375ml cork and caged bottle into my Portsmouth snifter/tulip glass. Pours a very dark brownish-black color, with just the smallest hint of mahogany. Appears to have little carbonation, as a very small dark tan head forms. Head is creamy, and when it dissipates, it remains as a very smooth surface of cream. Leaves a quick sliding fizzy lace. Overall, a very nice and inviting looking beer!
Aroma is right where I expected it. Brandy, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, toasted malts, and molasses.
Very tasty! Huge warmth from the mixture in the brandy and bourbon. Big chocolate/coffee notes. The full body comes in very, very sweet...with the booze warmth attacking the second it hits your lips. The beer finishes as delicious and sweet as it starts. This beer is excellent! Tomme continues to make some of the best barrel aged beers around. Just wish there was more of this produced...because I bet this beer will age with the best of them! Carbonation is low, but there...and doesn't hurt the beer one bit. Booze is high, and drinkability is surprisingly high for such a full body beer.
