4.18/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
2013 vintage. Poured from a 12.7 oz cork n caged bottle into a Half Acre snifter.
A- pours near black with a half finger mocha head. Small bubbles of lacing cling to the glass.
S- big port aromas, oak, some barrel notes, dark fruits, light chocolate and roast
T- bitter bakers chocolate, oak, dark fruits, tawny notes, barrel but not really brandy or bourbon just liquor notes, more port or vinous notes at the finish.
M- full body and low carbonation. Fairly mild, light feel with some abv that is noticeable and dry finish.
O- very interesting beer. Brandy angel's share and serpents stout blend lends more oak and port notes than brandy or stout.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.
A - Pours an inky black with a 3/4 of a finger chocolate colored head which evaporated quickly. Small clumps of lacing.
S - Intense aroma of bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisin, ash, anise, and chocolate. Smells amazing.
T - Incredibly rich and complex mix of chocolate, plum, oak, whiskey, vanilla, brandy, smoke, and black licorice. Date, prune and fig flavors come out as it warms. The tinniest hint of black cherry tartness in the mid palate. An soy sauce like element in the finish. (not a bad thing by any means) Woody bitterness and roast provides nice balance, but this is a sweet brew overall. ABV definitely noticeable but not overpowering. A slow sipper.
M - So full bodied, you almost need a knife and fork. Low carbonation. Velvety smooth. Coats the mouth, but manages to avoid being syrupy. Perfect for the style.
O - Complex and amazing. Thankfully, the bourbon flavors do not overpower the base beer. If sweeter strongly alcoholic beers are your thing, don't miss this one. Superb.
