Ontap. This batch was 12.5% abv

Pours a dark brown color with a semi creamy off-white head.
The aroma carries so much expression, with flame torched marshmallow, vanilla, oak, bourbon, brandy, cocoa, and somewhat sweet overall.
The flavor has cocoa, caramel, vanilla, bourbon spiked coffee, and plenty of dry oaky tannins. Slight oxidized notes, a bit of sherry to compliment the bourbon, brandy, and alcoholic esters all around. Medium bodied,

Liquid candy for adults.

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.
