I finally decided to crack this open last night. I have been holding on to this for a special occasion. Last night seemed like as good a time as any.
This appears a dark Ruby brown with a thin crisp mocha head... wasn't expecting this much carbonation... looking pretty good...
Sweet dark fruits soaked in booze.... hints of cocoa here and there but the fruit is the main player here... traces of booze here and there... the bourbon packs a wallop in the aroma dept also... nothing subdued about this at all... in your face all the way...
I will admit that the first few sips were some of the most delicious I've ever experienced from a beer... deep dark chocolate covered raisins tinged with traces of bourbon and brown sugar and vanilla... truly astounding... unfortunately it didn't last. This is still an amazing brew but the sheer booziness quickly numbed my senses and I didn't enjoy the second half of the bottle anywhere near as much as the first... rather sweet and cloying and became a chore to get thru honestly... maybe a little more time? This was bottled in 2011 so im wondering if I should have sat on this for a little longer...
A good effort but not a great one... too boozy and sweet for its own good...
