12.7 ounce bottle - $14.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Gurgles out an inky, blank body with a smallish, but dense, dark tan head.

Smell: Blended malts leaning towards roasted with noticed inclusions of the sublime bourbon and brandy barrel aging. Bittersweet chocolate, nutty sweet syrups. Heavy on the dark fruits.

Taste: Roasty maltiness, dark chocolate fudge, a spoonful of maple syrup. A few flecks of char. Blend of the robust brandy and bourbon notes. Deep dark fruitiness, prunes and dates. Splash of tawny port. Low hint of anise. A little perceived saltiness precedes the soft, roasty, chocolaty finish followed by lingering warmth and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel.

Overall: Let us all enjoy the wonder of Deliverance Ale!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from 12.7 oz bottle into snifter.

Appearance: Very dark brown, almost black. Very thin brown head that all but disappears as you drink this beer.

Smell: Bourbon and brandy barrels, mostly. Little bit of chocolate and vanilla. Smells incredible.

Taste: I love bourbon, and that's the main flavor I get from this beer. Strong oak flavor that introduces an incredibly complex mixture of vanilla, chocolate, malts, caramel, and a little bit of dark fruit. Finishes with more oak. Incredible.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and thick, although almost no carbonation. Slight alcohol bite, but that's to be expected considering the high alcohol content.

Overall: Worth the price, in my opinion. Had this on my birthday, and it was one of the best beers I've ever had. Very complex, and did I mention this beer is reminiscent of bourbon? Highly recommended.
