Poured 12.7 oz bottle into Lost Abbey Teku glass

A-Very little head, looks like coke. Very good lacing.

T-Smells amazing! Bourbon and brandy with dark fruit, some vanilla and brown sugar. It tastes mostly like bourbon with brandy backbone and raisins.

M-mouthfeel is very well balance and decent carbonation.

O-Overall a great American strong ale so glad to finally get one.

4.24/5  rDev -1.4%

Appearance - pours dark brown, almost black with no head or lacing.

Smell - you can smell the barrel aging - predominantly brandy. Can barely make out a slight char from the bourbon barrels. Not as dominate as some of the other reviewers have described.

Taste - finishes with an elegant dark chocolate, faint raisiny or dark fruit presence.

Mouthfeel - rich and velvety texture with very little carbonation.

Overall - a little pricey for a 12.7 ounce bottle but very good overall. Worth the splurge.

A - Opaque dark brown. Pours with minimal head that quickly dissipates to almost nothing.

S - Not alot going on out of the fridge, and not alot going on as it warms up. A mild bourbon and brandy in the smell with alcohol coming through. Smells sweet.

T - Tastes better than it smells. Still plenty of brandy and bourbon, but now a little faint vanilla and chocolate show up.

M - Silky smooth mouthfeel with and little tingly alcohol finish. If there's such a thing as a balanced mouthfeel, this one has it. I just started doing reviews of the individual pieces and parts of beers, so I can't say I've get the perfect informed perspective on mouthfeel, but this is damn outstanding.

O - Good but not great offering. Not enough going on with the smell and the taste to give it high marks overall. The barrels kind of overwhelm the base beer.
