From bottle that I thought was dated 2014, but seems to have vanished w/condensation.

Very tan head that dissipates quickly. Looks syrupy as it fills the glass, a wide mouthed Chimay goblet.

Prune/raisiney aroma. The bourbon is present & it tastes like it should have an alcohol burn, but it doesn't. Perhaps smoothed with the brandy barrel aging.

Very syrupy texture & a slight burnt sugar bitterness that keeps the sweetness in check.

There is a whole lot going on in this glass & at $1.50 an Oz. one would assume it's all got to do with the aging. The 12.5% is barely noticeable on the palate.

Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll be sure to have a range of nibbles to see what marries.

Big taste. Big beer. For big occasions.
