2010 vintage.

bottle poured into snifter.

Appearance: black bodied beer with a medium tan cap that becomes a ring on top of the beer.

Smell: Huge barrel notes that are fairly dominant; bourbon, brandy, and oak. Vanilla, coffee and bakers cocoa.

Taste: Sweet malts combining with the sweet taste of bourbon and brandy. Along with the sweetness is a warming and moderate boozey burn. Dark fruits, hints of vanilla and coffee. Dark chocolates and cocoa. The middle of the beer becomes mildly bitter after starting off really sweet. Aftertaste is booze and coffee.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied beer with low carbonation levels. Thick, syrupy, and sticky.

Overall: Was at FOBAB this weekend and saw this on the list and made me want to pop this beer. Its a nice beer for the style, but I prefer the FSW anniversary beers when it comes down to blended beer from this style. Its a tasty beer, but its quite expensive at almost 18 dollars a bottle.

1 year old bottle poured into brandy snifter at about 50 degrees.

Deep, deep brown to black body with just a thin film that fades to a tiny ring.

Aromas include plenty of sweet apple brandy. Oak barrel, burgundy wine, chocolate bar, and cherry juice battle for second place.

The vinous qualities kick in a little stronger on the flavor (almost plum like) along with the oak-aged bourbon. Black strap molasses firmly in the middle. The afterglow has plenty of rich chocolate, roasted malt, and some heat on the throat.

Mouthfeel is thick and slick. Just a hint of carbonation. Sticky finish.

You know what you're getting into with this one, and it doesn't disappoint.
